    Contractors could learn a lot from Swiss Toni:

    When you're selling a car to a man, it all comes down to who's got the biggest todger. You have to make him think that his is bigger. But, in order to sell it to him, you have to know that yours is the biggest. You have to keep telling yourself, "I've got the biggest todger in the world".

    The next article is my take on the difference between the permie job cycle and the contractor one. The permie one involves hiring all year for jobs no one really knows why they are hiring for and the contract one is because management are gonna miss their bonuses and are gonna move quick!

    I asked this because I was reading a thread about someone who quit his job and found that suddenly all the sharepoint contract roles had disappeared and some people here said agencies would skip him as it was his first contract and would have the right contractor attitude

    Apparently you can’t follow anyone
