When I noticed the non-compete clause in my current contract position I almost walked out in frustration but, I needed the job. Why did I react that way? I immediately saw it as an illegal restriction that will hinder my ability to make a living. I understand the need for a headhunter to protect him/herself but if I am a good contractor here and the company comes up with a permanent position, I should not have to "pay off" someone who sits and collects money from my work (which is a source of frustration that is another story). I'm sure, unless the company sees me as an "invaluable" asset, it will think twice about hiring me fulltime if it has to fork over a bunch of cash to do so. I almost want to have the opportunity to challenge the legality of non-compete clauses in court but I need to pay the bills.



Got my armor-plated underwear on now so respond as you will.
