I am looking for a word or term for the concept of being employed only for a specific project.
In my native language, we have a word that just means "project employment", it is commonly used to describe the kind of employment where one has a set period of time in the contract, and where one is only expected to work on this very specific project. The contract may even not have a set end date, but instead, stipulate "until the project is done". But it is always a limited time employment.
It is commonly used as a way in on the job market, as if the circumstances allow it, one could be hired for a permanent place after the period ends.
What would the correct English term for this kind of employment for use in my resume/curriculum vitae be?
