November 13, 2009, Newsletter Issue #5: Freedom from Office Politics

Tip of the Week

Freedom from office politics is seen as one of the greatest attractions to becoming a contracted employee. No matter what position you hold in a company, whether working as an entry-level office worker or reporting directly to the president of a corporation, office politics are as inescapable as the taxes at the end of the pay period.

Because contract working requires that an individual be brought in for brief periods of time, just long enough to get the job done before moving on to their next assignment, this can be an idyllic scenario for those with little patience for environments rife with drama. The fact that many employers use staffing agencies to “test drive” prospective employees prior to offering them permanent employment, finding work through a recruiter can work both ways in allowing you to get an idea of the atmosphere of a particular company without committing to permanent employment.
