I stay because of contracts.
I go because of contracts.

People want stability -ie- longish contracts (longer than 3-6 months -or- at least a year).0 It really depends on what you're doing job-wise, but I just want stability.

If a job takes only 6months, that's fine, but I'd rather take a 1 year contract over a 6 month contract anyday.

In IT people are too often contracted for short-terms for full time permanent positions, and I just can't figure that logic out. What's the point in rotating employees every 3-6 months for a permanent position?

The problem as i see it in this situation is that the short-term-contractor is lining up his next job halfway through his <6mo contract, so if the genius who hired him offers to extend the contract another 6mo (or whatever), the contractor has to decline because he already lined up his next contract.

That's just been my experience.
