There is no such thing as a temporary contract or a permanent position

Early in my career, an older, wiser, IT Professional told me that there is no such thing as a temporary contract or a permanent position.

Full time positions don’t last forever.  Lay-offs and reorganizations are realities that full time employees have to deal with.

Sometimes contracts are extended much longer than expected.  I’ve had jobs, that started out as 6 month contracts, last over 2 years.

IT Consulting is not for the faint of heart.  You can be let go at a moments notice for things that are beyond your control.  Budgets get cut. That’s the way it goes.  At the same time, there is a lot more money to be made in consulting.  Why not make the most money that you can for your work?
