Envvy...the job market is as good or bad as it is for you. Think of the
elephant to the 3 blind men. To some, they can get a job on demand, to
others, they can't get a job to save their lives (figurately speaking).
Factors include skills, location, economics, etc. If I was to say that in
my area, for what I do, it's great, would that mean that for you, where you
are, for what you do, it is also great?

You need to ask yourself hard questions and pick an answer that satisfies
you in a way that if you make the decision and get dumped, you don't kick
yourself, and at the same time, if you don't and hear that the person who
did makes CEO, you also don't kick yourself. If we tell you it's great, and
you change, then get dumped, are we going to pay your rent for you?

That's like me asking the list "I have a great girlfriend. I have the
opportunity to get a better one. Should I dump the one I have?"

Subject: Contract Work! How is the Market Really??? I really need some

Hi ,
I have an opportunity to take a contract position with
a stable company. I am currently a fulltime employee
at a lawfirm. I have been out of the TW field for only
a year... Had to find a job! Anyone have any thoughts
on leaving a fulltime job for a contract position with
serious potential?
