Will I lose unemployment benefits and possible opportunities working for the client?
I worked 2+ years in a large PC company like Dell. My contract is coming up and I'd like to pursue something permanent before it expires. I haven't gotten word when my last day is.

My family can't help me financially. What do you think? It's bugging the heck out of me.
