They woudl learn that their new agent isn’t in fact their agent but their competitor for the funds that a client is paying for them.
They can learn how to do their CV optimally, how to look for contracts best and how to make sure you pass as many interviews as possible.
Contractor Freelance Network – Experienced Contractors
It’s useful also for experienced contractors who may know some pitfalls but not others.
You need to take every advantage you can on your fellow contractors in what is a competitive market.
Then there is advice on how to get the best rate you can, how best to get renewed and how best to get a rise at renewal time.
There can be not that much difference between a successful contractor and an unsuccessful one.
The successful contractor nakes sure that he, or she, acts to their own best advantage.
There are too many contractors spending too much time between contracts when they don’t need to.
It all eats away at their incomes.
It is the reason some of them never manage to get out of it.
And then there are the contractors who take the best advice, who get picked for lots of interviews, who pass them more often than not and who keep getting the renewals at better and better rates.
Be one of those.
Joining the Contractor Network would be a big step forward.
