As designers and developers, it’s hard for us to find long term work. Most companies that need to have design or development related work done will just hire for that short time period to get what they need done and then move on rather than hire a full time designer or developer.
Doing that makes it cost effective for the company and in the current economy, that’s very important. Although this works great for the company, it’s not ideal for us designers and developers because we have to constantly looking for work.
