Contract Job Ads
Most contractors hear about contract positions from contract job ads on job boards, although some of them are contacted by agencies.
One of the big complaints from contractors is fake job ads.
Often agencies will post a contract job that doesn’t exist onto job boards.
Their reason for doing so is to build up their own databases with contractors for particular skills at which they are short in supply.
Often contractors have called up those agencies withing minutes of the contract opportunity being posted on a job board only to be told that the contract had already been taken.[caption id="attachment_842" align="alignnone" width="197"] Contract Job Ads as posted on job boards[/caption]
