I have had to resort to contracting in and around the area. The only problem is not getting paid on time. Not my favorite gig. But work is work.

At this time I am working for a contracting office and I will be going FT w/the company that I am with right now in the next month or so. I have been temping for year and I have had some great job there. I have learned many new things w/each job that I go to.

I am considering doing contract work. I am on my husbands job benefits so I am OK. I have always been W2 so moving to 1099 is a big question for me.

BTW--I am a Clinical Research Associate. (I travel to clinical sites and review research data for accuracy and compliance.) Previously, I worked for pharma based in a home office. emoticon
