6 Reasons to Accept Contract Work in 2020

There seems to be a common theme with a lot of people these days: 2020 has been a rough year. From political and social unrest to the corona virus pandemic, many are ready to be on the other side of 2020. One big piece of the stress of the year are the shutdowns that came as COVID-19 cases began to rise nationwide. Though necessary to slow the spread of the virus, the shutdowns triggered economic turmoil and layoffs for millions of Americans. For those looking for work, contract work may can be a very good option.

Here are six reasons to accept contract work in 2020.

Contract work is a great resume builder

Contract work keeps you active in the career world and also gives you the opportunity to learn new skills and strengthen older ones. You have the opportunity to take on new projects and be part of a team in need of your expertise.

Contract work keeps you working while you look for permanent work

If you have a contract with a specific end date, you know exactly how long you have in your role and can plan your career moves accordingly. It also can help avoid gaps in employment, keeping you actively employed.

Contract work often leads to full-time work

Even though you may have a contract end-date, it’s possible for your contract to be extended or that you’ll be offered a full-time role. In fact, at ICONMA, we see a sizeable percentage of our contractors accept full-time roles every year. Your performance is often what determines this, so keep this in mind when you accept a contract role. Your attendance, the quality of your work, and how well you work with your team are things your manager will consider before recommending you for a full-time role.

Contract work is available in all skill sets

There’s almost no industry that doesn’t offer contract positions, making it an option for most professional roles. Companies in finance, engineering, marketing, healthcare, sales, management, administration and more all use contractors to fill roles critical to the company’s success.

Contract work helps you expand your network

When you accept a contract role, you open yourself to a new set of contacts. Managers, directors, and other co-workers can become new sources of knowledge, connections, and references. All of this can help you in your overall career journey, so take time to know the people you work with. If you work with recruiters to get your role, they also become potential people who can help you further along in your career.

Contract work often comes with the benefits you need

Accepting a contract role doesn’t have to mean missing out on the employer-sponsored benefits that you need. ICONMA offers medical, dental, vision, and many other benefits to our contractors because we know how important they are to our workforce.

With all this in consideration, it’s easy to see why more and more people are accepting contract roles. If you’re looking for your next role, visit the ICONMA Career Portal to see the hundreds of job openings we have around the country. If you know of someone looking for their next role, be sure to share the portal with them. We offer referral bonuses!
