Not sure if contracting is right for you? Check out how this type of role can benefit your career from Meghan Balavender of WinterWyman’s Technology division.
One of the benefits of contracting is higher compensation. Many full-time employees will leave their job to become a contractor to make more money and one of the reasons for that is you are paid for every hour that you work. If you end up working more than 40 hours a week, you’re paid for all those hours on the contracting side. Another benefit of contracting is exposure to new environments and new technologies. As a full-time employee you can get stuck working for years and years in the same environment and as a contractor you’re exposed to different environments and newer technologies that makes you more marketable to future employers.Career advice | Contracting | Finding a job | Video | WinterWyman
