This company is really happy with the work of an IT consultant pilot fish who's on a project for them. Trouble is, fish feels like he's stuck in a rut.
"After all, one of the benefits of being a consultant is the variety," says fish. "I was on this ongoing project for three years. I started getting tired of the work, so I spoke with the staff at the consulting firm."
The consulting firm likes fish too, and wants to keep him happy and on the payroll. So fish's resume is updated, and the firm begins marketing him to other potential clients again.
And, naturally, the consulting firm approaches the company where fish has been for three years to discuss not renewing fish's deal at the next cycle and transitioning to a different consultant on that project.
