BENEFITS OF BEING AN IT CONTRACTOR
If you have a unique software engineering background with a variety of skillsets, you may want to consider being an IT contractor. As a contractor, you have the flexibility and freedom to choose the jobs you want to do and can diversify your skillset rather than doing the same thing every day. You can work as much as you want or as little as you want with no one telling you what to do. Being an IT contractor may also lead you to an opportunity to look at other full-time IT jobs if your intention is to get some experience before settling in on a certain job.
BENEFITS OF BEING A FULL-TIME IT EMPLOYEE
As a full-time employee in the IT field, you can enjoy the stability of having a job in a competitive industry. More people are becoming an IT contractor instead of opting for full-time IT jobs, which means the competition as a contractor will only continue to get more intense. Many employers today allow their IT staff to diversify their skillsets within the office to gain more experience, while still keeping their solid and steady job.
WHICH PATH IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
No one can tell you whether contract work or full-time employment is right for you except for you. When you go to an IT staffing company for job placement assistance, it’s likely the first question they will ask you. There’s no harm in starting out as a contractor then moving into full-time employment, but it is a little harder to go the other way. The reason is simply because many people find it difficult to give up stability once they have it. The choice comes down to your financial and personal situation, as both paths offer plenty of benefits.
