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
I agree, your life sucks 4 124
You deserved it 269

Christie Clarke tells us more.

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?

I had the same problem this year too! I didn't get the job. FML

as long as you aren't shit at the job you should be fine...otherwise ydi

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