I have worked for nine companies since 1968 when I entered the full-time work force in January 1968. Two in IT when I was a programmer or systems analyst, and seven as an Investment Analyst/Portfolio Manager. One company I worked for as an Investment Analyst, left in 1980 for another Investment Analyst position, and was rehired as a Vice President Portfolio Manager by the same company I left in 1980 because I was underpaid. The fact that I was underpaid in 1980 was clearly driven home when I left for a 50% increase in salary compensation, plus stock options, plus a bonis of up to 25% of salary. I started my own Institutional Investment Research company in 1988, sold it in 1990, left after my employment contract, part of the sale deal expired.Kahuna, I like a lot of your posts, an awful lot of them. But, you have a bad habit and I'm gonna call you on it.This person didn't ask for a listing of your work experience. The question was *how* short term contract people did it. The question is one of psychological and practical management of the day to day issues of doubt, time management, resource management, savings, paying bills, marketing, and other realities of working in that way. You didn't answer the question. You often do this, respond to someone's very rational question with a listing of your work history. Paul
