It’s almost 2019, and if you weren’t aware, the internet is here to stay.

Why Work Contract Placements?

by Liz Carey

The recruiting industry is ever-changing, and one trend we have seen is direct placement recruiters starting to accept and work temp/contract roles, so much so that NPAworldwide has created a contract placement specialty group to bring similar members, positions and opportunities together with the goal of more success and placements together.
