I wanted to put out a question. I am getting job offers from the great head hunters of the world. I keep telling them I am looking for something local. And I sometimes get it.

My real question is that I really am looking for a position with benefits. I need medical and dental. I am not used to contract work. And I am not used to working without having benefits. My last position was with a company that contracted to the company I was working for. And, their benefits were ok. But, since I left them, I am finding that it is difficult to find a position that will give me benefits. Either for a contractor or direct hire. So far, it has only been contract work.

What does one do to find work, contract or perm, that will accommodate benefits? Either I increase my fees to cover the medical/dental or they offer them? I am getting really discouraged in this new business model. I have always been a direct hire and no contract. Now, the new model has me confused and upset.

Thanks for any ideas.
