  1. Many of the jobs will be advertised by those lot, although more and more are appearing on Linked in directly from the company. Generally tho, the pimps will do the advertising and interviewing and charge you out to the company at a premium. So they will be doing the paperwork etc. Don't expect them to actively look for contracts for you - they won't. Contracting is mainly about applying for 3-5 jobs per day until you actually get a contract, then starting the applications again a month or so out from when the contract is due to end. Oh, and endless chasing of recruitment people who don't bother to return calls or give you information about potential jobs. It also means you will get a lot of calls from them for jobs which you won't be able to get, just to boost their numbers of interviewees. You will also get about 60 million requests through linked in from those companies as they all seem to have some sort of KPI for number of connections for potential people. You will also probably need your own ABN as most of them prefer to have someone with one. Good luck.
  2. I worked contract for years. It's a tough gig. Constantly on the lookout for your next contract, interviews etc. Contractors are also always the first to go when a company starts looking for cost savings. Yeah, the money can be there, but it's a heck of a lot easier to know where you are going to turn up to work the next day. It does give you more flexibility, however I got tired of being a hobo and moving from place to place and contract to contract.

    The trick is running Boyfriend5.0 and Husband1.0 simultaneously... Dual boot?

    I didn't get a notification for this one. Maybe something to do with the mobile site version?

    Yeah, multi-quote has been broken for a long time, so it looks like they decided the easiest thing was to just turn it off. Enter is a hard return. Its working the way a standard hard return works putting a paragraph space in the middle. Soft return is shift+enter IIRC. Hard to test on my android.

    Best PC Games to use with a controller

    Tomb raider. Dying light. Castle crashers. All great games. Dying light (and expansion) are probably my favorites due to the co-op.

    I don't like it. But I don't like your face either.

    I know if you go to the Unread content and then switch over to "All activity" on the left hand side, you can see all posts and reactions and all sorts, even if you aren't involved. I haven't had any notifications for it tho...

    Probably a dumb question, but have you turned it off in the notifications area? You go to your little picture at the top, Drop down, choose Account Settings => Notification Settings (on the right hand side of the screen). Then there is two sections on the page with the bottom having 2 columns (popup and email). There is also 2 save buttons. If you are changing stuff in the bottom section make sure you choose the bottom Save button.

    And then pinged me to find out that it was the browser and not the forum... Nice work dearheart. Your efforts are appreciated. The great battle of the CSS was totally worth it.

    So when do you get the little dot? *so confused* It looks like the title is bolded (but it's hard to tell with the color scheme) and I have some grey stars, but haven't noticed dots. So a star is if I've posted in the thread, a dot is if it's new and I haven't posted. The star is light grey if there aren't unread and dark grey if there are? Is that right? EDIT: Wait. I can't click on the star. Or are we talking about the star in the Unread area? Urghhh. I'm going back to BBS.

    Ok, so wierdness. I don't see the little grey circle. I looked for it when I saw Cybes post, but it's not showing for me.
