One of the skills most needed in a temporary job is the ability to compute time constraints. Computing tasks by time requires familiarity with a task. If you’ve […]

The Job Contract – Negotiating the Job Contract

Hook Up to Stay – Short Term Stays

Setting up your home away from home, or your home on the road, for longer than a couple weeks means establishing "temporary permanence."

Oh, my, well, we made it to Oklahoma. I don’t know how, and maybe I shouldn’t question it. We made it and that is all that matters. By the skin of our teeth, or should I say by the skin of our rubbers. Not that kind of rubber! Just wait. I’ll explain it all, if […]
