could they (you) not have something slightly more professional sounding other than 'Computer Contractor' in the business field on their (your) online app form? ...please?
better still, free text entry. most of us are aware of what we do :)

Hi Scotspine.

The field has to be specific, since the policy can only apply to IT contractors (not engineers for example) - it makes things much simpler for the underwriters I'd imagine, even though many of us would rather have something more professional sounding!

So how does putting Computer Contractor help then? I write low level software for embedded products. I consider myself an engineer and I am most certainly not an IT contractor.

Computer Contractor as a name is fine by me, but it doesn't equate to IT consultant IMO.

although i have to agree with tim123. i'd rather have something which more accurately reflected my business mo. i would have thought to be honest that computer contractor would be too loose a phrase for the insurance people to use. there are lots of contractors around, with varying degrees of opportunity for creating disaster, depending on whether they're sitting at an ms office helpdesk or creating mission-crit 'enterprise' software...the risk varies accordingly.
