Default Contract with Government Agency

I recently signed a new contract with one of the government agency and they offer me a 6 month contract. Is the contract renewable every 6 months? Or once its over, I'm gonna be jobless

Contract is very normal, especially for freshers.. common in govtech, dbs etc. Just check with then but in my experience, ive always seen cobtracts get renewed

I see. If renewed, it'll be every six months too? Kinda makes me feel that I have to be on my toes all the time XD

6 month sound short. Maybe check with them if have longer contract.

In any case, you should be on a look out for full time if contract role is all you are getting. Quit once you find something better. It doesn't matter even if the 6months or 1 year contracts are always renewed, contracts means access to career progression and staff benefit is lower, and you run the risk of being cut anytime

Ya a lot like this. Accept the contract role and continue to look for full time role.

6 months?

Yeah once it's over it's over. Renewable contracts are often in the years duration, not months.

Anyway just take it and look for a job at the same time. Job hunting while having a job is easier than job hunting with no job.
