Subject:contract work vs. permanent employment From:Gillian McGarvey <gmcgarv -at- PSYCHE -dot- OVID -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 3 Sep 1996 09:53:48 -0400
Please forgive me if this topic has been discussed recently, but I am
currently a permanent tech writer and am considering doing contract work
(for a tech writing agency -- there are many in my area). Would anyone
like to share their experience with both of these, and elaborate on the
pro's and con's? Thanks very much in advance,
