Job Security

15 04 2011

The one year anniversary of my employment at my current position is just on the horizon (July 1). I am anxious to see what my new contract will look like. Will it be a one year or two year contract? Will there be a cost of living increase? These are just a couple of the questions to which I am excited to find the answer. We have a departmental faculty meeting today, so I may just ask when the new contracts will be coming out.
Would that be too forward to ask? I see no reason why I should get a new contract. No one has seem displeased with me so far. The students seem to really like me. They have spent a lot of money on starting up my lab.
Does anyone else get nervous when it is time for new contracts to come out?

Oh boy was I scared when that time rolled in. I remember that I waited until the last possible second to ask, and when I did the boss said, sure, why not. It was at the end of my second year there, when I wasn’t so excited and when I wanted out that he noticed it, and his demeanour also changed, and he was not as excited about extending my stay (nor was I). I’m glad you got a good raise and a new year! Hope things go great.
