I am doing temping work now and then. Had a cardiac arrest so I do some more training in finance to coincide with my generic management studies when I first graduated. I have 2yrs of that desk job experience and a few yrs of admin type work in finance/projects working with the manager doing forecast etc.
I've been told that even for some 1-3 weeks or 1-3 month roles - they got someone with more calibre or that I am overqualified. One even asked the agency to ask me if I can give them the assurance I won't leave in the 3 months and then they came back and said I am still overqualified.
Are there people out there who fight for 1-3 week contracts? The going pay is $30-40/hr that particular role was maybe closer to the $40.
