Re: Jobs.... Benefits...
You've received some great advice from others already. What do you do?
I can't answer what you should do, but here's what I'm doing:
I set myself with a higher base rate for contract work. As you know,
medical/dental coverage isn't cheap. I've had to turn away a LOT of
headhunters based on rates, but I haven't regretted it. Working the
numbers showed I would have needed two of these "lowball" contracts to
scrape by. If I'm going to work myself absolutely ragged, I'll do it
without putting my 17+ years of experience and 12+ years of total
career investment to work (perhaps as a landscaper or bartender). The
better paying work I find more than makes up for the ones I've not
pursued, and I still keep the FTE search going.
Best of luck to you!
