Today, I learned that my position will end in the next month. When I asked my boss about it, she told me I would have to reapply for the job to keep it. I have to pass another interview test for the job I've been working for the past 8 months. FML

OP here. Didn't think this would get published, but here we are. For background context, I work in a public library and it was a term job on top of my permanent position that went from March to November 2017. It has good pay and good hours so I desperately want to keep it, but I have to reapply. Also anyone else can apply for it too, so I have to ace the interview. My permanent position, on the other hand, is under 20 hours biweekly at a little above minimum wage; not something I can live off of, but at least I'll have that and can look for another job if I have to. Thanks for the positive feedback :)

Starting to wish you took the red pill now, aren't you?

I suspect it's only a formality, I wouldn't worry too much about it unless you are a doofus and they don't want to keep you around anymore.

Well he's a grown adult with a job. Taking the red pill is for loser teens trying to be edgy.

My mom went through the same thing five times in three years. I feel your pain.

Look at it as a way to move up. See if you can get a promotion or a raise. Doesn't have to be a bad thing.

Seems like you'd pass with flying colors if you're good at your job.

Was this an 8 month contracted position? If not I think we need more information.

Who made the decision to do this with your job and how did they ever get to be in charge?

On the plus side, you've got 8 months experience in a similar position.
