HotPanda, content for mature pandas !
A little bit of context : I'm looking for a job as a web developer, but close to the place I live - however, if you need some front-end integration with your website or if you want to commission me for an illustration, feel free to write me!
I updated my résumé on different websites, and then my phone started ringing because "my profile was very interesting". I changed my career from a textiles engineer to a web developer, and it was really new to me to be receive so many phone calls. I accepted the interviews, and it's great when they are online 👌
In France, we have ESN : Entreprise de Services Numériques, which are companies who offer long-term contract to tech profiles, but not for working into these companies. These companies have deals with their clients who need tech skills for short-mid-long term instead of hiring permanent employees.
It seems that the english translation is "IT staffing agency" but if you have a more accurate wording, please let me know.
The benefit on working for this type of company seems to have the security of a permanent job, but the biggest drawback is the fact that in most case, the client's office can be really away from your home.
Yes, this is a real anecdote from my real life, and I added the characters "angel" and "demon" for a better representation of my thoughts at that time. And these thoughts came to me really quick! I often describe the HotPandas, like this current comics as comics with puns and quiproquos, I almost did one myself, but usually I make them intentionally 😅
And yes, my "angel" version is in pajamas, and my "demon" version is kind of dressed like a goth panda-girl 😅 Since Moustache the panda is absent from this comics, I had to add a panda somewhere...
