I've had contracts that lasted as long as 11 months and as short as 2 months (which is my current contract)

Going into a job, what is the average stated anticipated duration of a TW
contract assignment.

A recruiter from the Boston area recently told me that 99% of all contract
jobs are initially for three months, but that the majority are subsequently
boosted-up to a duration of six months or more. How does this sound?

Note: I have read that the average stated duration going into a contract job
is six months.
