Learn how to escalate your career growth—and improve your work-life balance—by taking on a role as a contractor or temporary employee.
- Imagine having the option of working nine months of the year and taking three off. Or, working from home or from a cabin by the lake. Or what about working only 30 hours a week. All those options exist in the non-traditional world of contractors and temps. Millennials make up 50% of the workforce but don't necessarily wanna work five days a week, 52 weeks a year. And baby boomers like me, has spent most of their lives living to work and are now ready to cut back.
No matter what stage of your career working as a temporary employee or contractor is a great option. You can do what you want and work when and where you want. In fact employers say that by 2025 they expect 68% of work will be done by a non-traditional, flexible workforce.
