    I recently got offered a job to work for Ethicon, which is part of Johnson and Johnson. Now, I've been working there as a contractor for a while, but this is different. This is for a full-time, permanent role! I have been wanting something like this ever since 2005! It's always been contractor roles ever since I graduated college undergrad, but this is the real deal now. I'm excited and it's working with a great team that I've worked with before. They're cool, they're friendly, and they're a lot of fun to work with. And they design really cool stuff too, which consists of tools and equipment for surgery. These things save lives! Also, these were the guys that got a thrill out of me dressing up like a pixie for Project Pixie stuff.

    After putting in my two week notice for my current contractor position, I was told I have four vacation days accrued. I thought I only had two, so I'm taking the 18th through the 23rd off. The 24th I have to go in to turn in my laptop and badge, as well as gather my stuff from my desk. Then I get another four days off and start this neat new position on the 29th. So it's almost like a ten-day vacation! Meanwhile, everyone's been really nice about wishing the best for me and that they were happy to have the chance to work with me. Dang, that stuff feels good.
    Hey congrats man! Major kudos to you on landing the new job! Sounds like a big dream to hit something like that. Good luck with the job and have a great and fun time off when it comes dude! Well deserved if I must say so. I'm sure you'll have just as great a time working the new job. Especially with all the new benefits and pay.

    The time is upon us...

    Thanks dude! You guys are awesome. :3

    Given, being a temporary contractor isn't bad, but it's not the kind of thing to do if you're looking for long-term career growth and job security. Temporary contractor roles usually only keep you on for the duration of the project and then, well, it's goodbye. And that can be tough because you meet and work with a lot of great people, but then you need to leave them behind. They're good if you're just coming out of college or so and need something quick, but yeah, it's not something you want to be forever locked into. But on the other hand, you do see a very wide variety of companies and projects.

    And yeah, I need these benefits. I shovel out $4400 a year for my own medical insurance plans, and I don't even have dental. :P
