CLIENT PROFILE: CONTRACT / TEMPORARY EMPLOYMENT

Kent Nolen

Great opportunities come in all shapes and sizes. I just heard from a client, Mike, who was nervous about entering the job market in pursuit of a job in Finance. With so many people out of work in the field, he was convinced that finding a great job would be a Herculean task. He sent me an e-mail to let me know that – based on a conversation we had – he decided to throw the net wider. Rather than looking for only full-time, permanent work, he decided to pursue different avenues as well.

Mike reported that he found a great opportunity as a contracted Senior Analyst. If all works as planned, he’ll move from one short term assignment to another every 3 – 6 months. He’s getting placed by a third party firm, so he won’t have benefits attached to each assignment. That doesn’t bother him, though, because his pay is significantly higher, and he plans to get insurance on his own.

The world of work as we know it is changing drastically and quickly. I encourage you to consider all sorts of opportunities that might meet your needs. Temporary and contract positions aren’t just outstanding opportunities for support employees any longer. Consider options that just might offer a level of freedom / flexibility that works for you and – at the same time – better suit the evolving landscape of the workplace.
