Career options: Yes, you get to pick.

Contract: Working as a contractor offers the most flexible option to work on important projects, often with defined, pre-existing deadlines and move on to other projects upon completion. It affords you the flexibility to define the time periods you want to work full time and the time periods you want to sit back, relax, and take a vacation. Additionally, serving as an Elwood Professional contractor gives you the opportunity to gain marketable, high-demand skills and experience at a number of premier employers.

Contract-to-Hire: It's the classic “try before you buy” scenario; only, as an Elwood Professional contract-to-hire professional, you get some say in the outcome. In a contract-to-hire situation, you will work for a company for a pre-defined period of time; at the end of that contract, both you and the company can evaluate the overall experience and your individual future plans and decide if a long-term position makes sense.

Direct Hire: If you are looking for a full-time, long-term position, a direct hire opportunity is the perfect fit. Direct hire is just what it sounds like: you are hired directly into our client company. Elwood Professional recruiters do all of the legwork; but, after you sign a hiring contract, you are a full-fledged employee of the client company.
