my apologies posting a "career tools" question here, but I need help!
i have a degree in chemical engineering and worked in the environmental field for a couple of years after school. I had a chance to turn a hobby into a career and took a flier since I was still young and unmarried. It has been 12 years and I have built up a small business and do OK. However, I have a mortgage now and wife and young kids, and the up and down income of self employment and time commitments have me contemplating returning to the traditional workforce.
Thanks to the career tools podcast I am expecting an offer with a fortune 500 company. It is senior technician level, but it get's me in the door into an industry related to my small business experience. I interviewed with the hiring manager for a permanent position. However, when he called this week, he said things have changed and the offer to me would be on a contract basis. 6-9 months, but they expect to renew it regularly and I would be working side by side with permanent employees with a couple of other contract employees onsite also.
I don't mind working under a contract. What should I be looking for when the offer arrives?
what are red flags should I expect?
I will be speaking to HR to discuss the details next
Thanks a million for any feedback
