It’s easy to view the job market as a singular entity. People will say that “the job market is down, unemployment is up, businesses aren’t hiring.” Broad trends can be useful, but they can ignore the fact that certain segments of the job market grow robustly even in a downturn.

If you take a contract position, will it help or hurt your chances of landing a permanent position?
