Interested in pursuing contract positions but not sure where to start? Just landed your first contract position but now have questions about what this means for your career? Steven Mulhall introduces contract work for the business analyst and addresses the common questions and concerns surrounding contract work.

Not sure about contracting as a business analyst? The book addresses the following questions:

  • What are the advantages of contracting?
  • Is contracting a career path for me?
  • Will contracting dead-end my career?
  • Will I really make better money as a contractor?
  • What hourly or daily rate should I request?
  • What happens to all my benefits? 

Ready to get started with your first BA contract? This book will help you answer the following questions:

  • How do I find contract business analyst jobs?
  • What is the application and hiring process for contract business analyst jobs?
  • What is the role of the recruiter or agency?
  • What hourly or daily rate should I request?
  • What legal stuff do I need to concern myself with?
  • How can I be sure I’m successful getting started with my first contract gig?

We can’t do it all for you. This book is not:

  • A guide to starting a consulting practice.
  • A guidebook to starting an LLC or sole prop (we’ll help explain this, but nothing is a substitute for sound advice from a CPA or a lawyer).
  • A detailed analysis of working as a contractor in every country. We’ve got US and UK covered.
