I have been reading the site for a while and have an issue I need advice on.
1) I am currently in a job I dislike. My skills are not being used and I am not challenged.
2) I interviewed for a full time position with a company through a recruiter. The recruiter told me after the interview that the company said they are not convinced that my skills will be usable beyond the current project. They have changed the offer to a six month contract offer. I have zero concern that my technical skills are less than the company is looking for and know I can prove my worth in the six month time frame.
3) I can always go back to my old job as I did not burn bridges however I must go back on the road to take the position.
I am not sure which path to pursue. Once on the job that has been offered I am confident I can prove myself. I do not want to go back on the road except as a last resort. The current job is horrible but I can live with it if I have to.
Any advice is appreciated.
