I'm official.

Finally, after 7 years at my agency, I am officially permanent staff. I have been working a full time position for numerous years, but it has been temporary. Which means, I had to reapply for the position every time it came due. Not a big deal really, but more of an irritation. Now, I own the position. It's mine. No one can take it from me and I am full time until forever.

I guess I should be more excited, but I feel like nothing has really changed. I guess it hasn't, but I feel like I should feel different. Or something. I have no idea.

Of course, now I am "one of them". The permanent full time staff. Not one of the casuals or the newbies or anything like that.

Weird.

  1. Congrats Bronwyn.

  2. Congratulations! Does anything change with the fact that you're now permanent staff? A raise? Coffee privileges? Bragging rights? Just the right to not have to re-apply for your job?

  3. Thanks! Nope, nothing changes except that I don't have to re-apply and I can now take leaves if I want to. Like education or maternity - not that I would, but I can!!

    (Yeah, I had forgotten to put it back on there when I changed the site around. I couldn't remember what all was there.)

  4. Awesome - congratulations! And hey, never underestimate the wonders of job security. Plus the fact that you'll have less hassles (having to reapply).

    Go out and do something special for yourself - you deserve it!!

  5. I was full time temp. for years, too. The one big change for me was that was a non-permanent (no matter how many years you did the job) you couldn't contribute to a pension fund.
