Take those contract jobs!

If you ever get an offer to do a contract job and you are unemployed, my advice is to take the job even if it pays you less than what you were making in your last job.

A contract job will:

  • open doors to new opportunities that may lead into permanent positions
  • increase your job history
  • show potential employers that  you have made an effort in your job search
  • maintain your skills in the workplace
  • increase your opportunity to networking circles

Many times, people fall into a concept of idealism and don't realize that rejecting those jobs is rejecting opportunities.
