With the economy rebounding after some shaky times, employers want to bring on more workers but are hesitant to hire permanent employees. This is a great time to get back into the job market, try out a new industry or pick up some more skills in a temporary role. Contracting is also usually a great way to up your take-home pay between jobs. If you are contracting, you may be able to hold out for the job you want at the pay rate that you are targeting. You also can take a longer-term contracting position and take some classes to help you get the job you really want.
