While “FTE” (full-time equivalent) roles still have a significant place in our career landscape, it’s a good idea to hold that notion of “permanent” lightly these days.
Even if a gig isn’t ideal, you might still find something of value in the experience. With the perspective that nothing is wasted, then every experience can serve a purpose. Optimize, maximize and make sure every gig matters in some way.
