Re: Hiring Publications Managers
Ask the candidate questions if the job history makes you uncomfortable, but don't be so quick to jump to conclusions that something is wrong. Far from being some sort of stigma, a record like the one you describe could be the sign of a person who is highly successful and living exactly the way that they like.
This, of course, might be exactly why she shouldn't consider him. If you're looking for a full-timer, then someone used to the life of a contractor who chose to do it because they can take sabbaticals is probably ill-suited, right now, to captive employment, regardless of how good they are at what they do. As an aside, quite frankly, I think they should stick with contracting and let the people who like captive employment get the full-time positions. After all, contracting was a choice and the contractor made more money last year because they were expected to use that money to pad them for bad times, whereas the full-timer didn't.
