I am currently going after a position with a large company. I was just informed in my last interview that it was a contract position. They explained to me that they (and apparently alot of large companies) set up their budgets this way because they are not sure of new positions they may want within the year. Therefore they put alot of money into their "contract folder" for new positions that develop. This company is growing very vast especially in this department. They say this position WILL be approved in the next budget, in 9 months, and will become a firm position at that point. Anyone have experience with this? This something to be concerned about?
