Same work, more pay
On average, contractors can expect to earn anywhere from 30 to 100 percent more than regular salaried employees.

Learn about yourself
Challenging yourself with a variety of situations will help you define who you are and where you want your career to go.
Control of contract length
One advantage cited by many contractors is that they’re in control of when they work – and how long they take off in between contracts.
Short notice periods = flexibility
Typical notice periods of a week contribute further to a contractor’s sense of freedom – freedom to relocate, freedom to take a vacation and flexibility to move on to a better role quickly and easily when opportunities arise.
