I'm a software dev who was transitioned from a temporary employee on a 12 month term to a permanent employee (4 months into the job) a few months ago (I have held the job for 7 months). With COVID-19 likely to dramatically impact our area of business, I am updating my resume and trying to build a pipeline of options.
To clarify: - I was hired as a temporary employee with a contract lasting 12 months. This was in September. - The product owner liked me and wanted me as part of the project. - She asked her boss (the CEO of the 500 person agency) to have me hired full time. I was hired permanently in January. - It is now March.
Before that, I was earning my software engineering degree.
This isn't an urgent thing because I am part of a large local government (relatively secure) and thus plan to stay, but the software I work on is not yet live, so it could be cut as a cost saving measure.
