Depends on a lot of factors like, is the pay based on an hourly rate or a fixed salary, is it a consultant job or just an ordinary position, are there possibilities for a bonus structure. Too many

In the vast majority of cases contract jobs are just normal positions without benefits so essentially treat it as a normal job interview and use those strategies.

If it's a consultant job and you were approached by the employer, then it's good to start with: "Why, do they need your services?"

all I know is its 2-3 months and what they are paying me
The truth. I'm so unbelievably passionate about this job, please allow me to crawl up your ass to embody your company's mission statement through my soul!? PLEASE CAN I BE PART OF YOUR CORPORATE FAMILY? That might stand in your favour.

The first question I would ask is what do they mean by "contract job"? Does that mean independent contractor? Or temporary contract so they can try you out without the risk of employing you properly? Or fixed-term contract?

Insist on payment in BTC. Difficult then to trace you as hired murderess.

Important to understand whether SARS will see you as Independent Contractor or not, because if so there are write-offs.
