Consult, Contract & Other Jobs
One of the more popular options for those not returning to work for another company is to get into contracting or consulting. There are many stories of people contracting with companies, only to turn that into full time jobs (if they want). These are great ways to increase your network, and to show potential employees what you can do for them.
Since not all of us can wait to make money…..this part of the site will also talk about ways to make money “on the side.” We admit, we’ve never done gig work, so all the advice here will be from those of you that send us your stories, and from research we do on your behalf. If you have stories, we want to hear them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
