I have been with my current company for over 2 years as interim CFO, on a number of short term contract positions, which they keep on renewing with the understanding that it will become a full time position with the company, for which I was told I was a strong candidate. My current contract expires at the end of April and they have informed me that they have decided to hire for a full time position, but that I will not be considered for the position. While they post for the position and do their hiring process they would like me to stay on for a further 2 months to the end of June. An internal announcement was made about this change yesterday and now are being treated much differently and people are avoiding me - it is if I am a dead man walking (which I guess I am). I am hoping to fiind another position prior to the end of June as the summer is a relatively slow hiring period here in Vancouver, and salary continuous is high on my list of things to have.
How do I get though the next 2 1/2 months in an environment where people are avoiding me, and all of the items I have been dealing with for the last 2 years are being questioned and taken over by the COO? It feels like it would be better if I was not around during the transition.
Thank you in advance for your comments and advice.
