Default Contracting in the US

All,

I am married to a US Citizen, and am applying for permanent residency. We're planning to move to the US in winter 2016/17.

Is there much (IT) contracting going on out there? Is is seen as a respectable career choice for IT professionals in the way it is in the UK? Or is it only for people who are trying to get permanent work?

I'm a BA in financial services in the City at the moment. I'm happy to get a perm role if contracting isn't a smart choice in the US, but would like to know a bit more.

Any thoughts appreciated. I'm sure it varies from state to state and city to city, but any general information would be great.

Thanks,
CF

Default Re: Contracting in the US

Yes and Yes. But he/she will need to contact an agency first, could be pretty hard to start out consulting by yourself.

Realistically though, if he/she is doing any online only consulting, that business can move with you.
