We’re approaching the last phases of our work in our project but I still can’t project if we can finish the project by the end of this year. We’ve requested for a realignment and extension until next month but it’s still in process so we really can’t tell how long we’ll be employed for the said project. I’m actually concerned with the CAD operators because for extension project nearing the end of contracts they usually minimize the number of staff and operate on a skeletal force.
With the progress we’re having the first group to finish will be the design plans group and as early as now some of them were given a month extension only. Oh well after the end of this one I’ll start another one again which if plans pushed through will be a longer term design and construction project. Even if there’s an opening in the head office I still prefer to be in the project as I feel more comfortable and I learn a lot.
Sixteen years in the head office is just enough for me, I want to enjoy my work life now in the project with more work but with less stress. I don’t want to grow old early with anxiety and work-related problems like my friend whose now wearing hair wigs to cover up receding and grey hairs brought about by being workaholic and too much stress.
