Differences Between Hiring a Contractor or Consultant
Hiring Technical People
AUGUST 18, 2015
In my session at Agile 2015, ( Agile Hiring: It’s a Team Sport ) one participant asked me if I hire contractors the same way I hire employees. The one difference is the offer—instead of a yearly salary paid in some form of incremental approach, contractors get a dollar/hour over a timeboxed period. One of the people in my session called contractors “consultants” and tweeted about it. I expect a contractor to provide extra pair-of-hands services.
