Contracting
   CAREER OPTIONS: CONTRACTING

Contracting is a rapidly growing work option. Some companies choose to maintain only a skeleton of staff at their core and then contract with individuals to perform a full-time but time-specific role. Compensation is usually based on salary, with no benefits. A contract may run from a few weeks to a few years. A person may work from contract to contract over extended periods of time with different employers.

Individuals who enjoy contracting are self-reliant. Similar to multi-trackers, they are confident in their skills and can adapt to different settings quickly. These individual can also work from home. They learn to demonstrate how their work can add value to an organization. This being said, many people do not enter contracting by choice. They are often victims of layoffs who have learned to adapt to new work realities.
