I'd go for the 1099 job that is "more cutting edge". Even if I didn't
get follow-on work, I'd have worked with new stuff, making me more
employable in the future.

Subject: Job chosing dillemma
I have to choose between two employers for a tech writing assignment.
1099 the other uses a W2 at the same rate. The W2 is a major oil company
that wants permanent employee later on if I'm right, the other promises
more work later, a pay raise and a possible perm position. The W2 job
wants me to do basically network, configuration documentation with no
real new tools to learn, the other is more cutting edge with online
tools like robohelp, and chart FX, etc...
I'm truly at a loss at to which do I choose.
