Contracting FAQ Sheet
Are you legit?
Absolutely. I'm incorporated in the State of Oregon (Star Mountain, Inc). I've been contracting since 1995. Worker's comp. The works.
Does your company require a pass-through agency? I can work with that too.
Can I depend on you?
Absolutely. I have never left a contract until the P.O. ran out. As long as you have work for me to do (and money for me to do it) I'll be there. I have been on contracts longer than employees! (And I won't consume your management time.) When the job is done, I'll leave with a smile and a handshake.
Will you relocate?
The bay area is a short flight away from Portland. I can be on-site for a couple of weeks to come up-to-speed and then come in as needed after that -- up to 3 days each week.
I normally work quite independently -- in many ways it's no different than how things work when I'm in a cubicle 5 days a week.
Are you farther than that? Let's talk.
Will you consider regular employment?
Someday the contracting business model may no longer be viable. At that time I will be quite grateful for an appropriate position.
