Not sure if you want to commit long-term? Don’t worry; contract employment can be your steady source of income for the next few years, according to the latest CareerBuilder survey. America’s leading job search engine predicts that contract jobs are on course for a 13% spike between this year and 2019 (Figure 1).
Here’s another piece of useful information if you’re seeking an immediate employment opportunity: 46% of the businesses that participated in the survey said they intend to hire more contract employees in 2015. The survey also examined the rate of job growth in different industries and hinted that the optimistic trend might last for years to come (Figure 2).
