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

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.
