A recent Irish Times article by Karen Firestone of Aureus Asset Management ‘Wake Up Call: Patience Key to longterm success‘ imparted the message that our careers should be considered a marathon and not a race and that the road to long-term success is paved with patience. This was based on feedback from a survey on male and female top level executives about their careers and career breaks or delays they had experienced. See below key points taken from same.
Everyone’s idea of ‘balance’ in life differs and we are each in charge of setting our own pace for life in general as well as our careers and are entitled to take a break or slow down when necessary for family/health or other reasons.
Contracting is a great way of shaking things up in your career if you feel you’re looking for a new challenge, maybe after taking a career break. Or if you are simply looking to move on from a long term PAYE role and gain new experience but unsure about committing to another company.
Experiencing working for a variety of different client companies, with different teams, varied projects etc. all the while gaining valuable experience are just some of the reasons people choose to become contractors.
