Though many organizations have begun contractual-based hiring, there is still a lot more hype about contract jobs than there are some honest facts. People tend to have a negative outlook on contract jobs, as sometimes contract jobs are commonly founded on the need, necessity, and haste of the situation.

It’s time for a fact check. Contract jobs can be an alluring opportunity, especially if you’re a working mother or a retired professional and need a stable source of earnings. Even if you’re employed but scrutinizing opportunities to change jobs or land a new position, contract work presents you with the opportunity to try out a job and keep your resume alive at the same time.

So, in this blog, We will debunk some of the biggest myths surrounding Contract Jobs and will try to establish some facts.:

Myth #1: A contract job is a low-level work

Fact: With the changing business terrain, workers’ demands have also altered over the years.  Both businesses and professionals have begun acknowledging the importance of having greater flexibility at the job, especially in jobs like accounting and finance.

Professionals are looking forward to the consulting as it presents them to secure challenging assignments, diverse professional culture, competitive pay scale, while still operating on their terms and conditions. At the same time, contract jobs let employers fill their openings that require years of experience – for both immediate and long-term projects without raising the headcount.

Myth #2: Contract Jobs are short term, sporadic, and low paying

Reality: The compensation in contract jobs differ according to the position and skills required, as in the case of traditional jobs. Employers are more considerate of the consultants’ needs and offer adequate variable and fixed bonuses, benefits for the family, and other allowances thereby making a contract job more competitive than regular jobs.

As for the tenure of the contract jobs, they offer a flexible work arrangement allowing the consultant to work for fewer hours than a full-time role; skilled professionals can work as much as they want.

Contract jobs can stay from a few months to more than a year or two. Moreover, extended tenures are even more likely in the current corporation environment, as more employers stay for signs of a sustained recovery before adding full-time headcount.

Myth #3: One cannot show a contract job on a resume

Reality: With a heightened increase of contract jobs, provisional assignments have nowadays been regarded as high-level consulting assignments than so-called “contract work”. Recruiters very well understand that project work offers short-term but useful experience and can add to the person’s skill set. This is also one of the causes for more and more people, especially working mothers to consider a long period of constant contract job than a full-time role.

Myth #4: Contract jobs do not let to develop new skills

Reality: Contract work generally includes assignments and assignments that need discipline and a certain skill set. They can be highly demanding and need to stay abreast with the industry knowledge and developments and offer complimentary training to help project consultants continually upgrade their skills and earn recognition.

Work From Home Stress: How to Deal With it During the Pandemic? Tue, 22 Jun 2021 07:56:00 +0000 Work From Home Stress: How to Deal With it During the Pandemic?

Work-from-home stress is the result of the new normal that we are forced to endure for more than a year now due to the pandemic. The daily routine we had for our 9 to 5 job was tossed out as we had to make adjustments for our new normal, the work-from-home schedule.

In the beginning, we all were excited about the prospect of not spending hours on our daily commute, being stuck in traffic jams, or the fact that we don’t have to get all dressed up for a meeting. But after a year, we are realizing that it comes with its own unique set of challenges.

The constant shift of focus between office and home, and the lack of a professional environment have led to a further loss of morale. With no substantial end in sight, the only solution is to find the right policy to deal with this pressure.

If you are in the same boat dealing with the work from home fatigue, here are 5 easy ways which will help us go through our days a lot easier.

How to deal with work-from-home stress?

Well! This is the question that is in everyone’s mind right now, and everyone is dealing with the problems in their way. But still, if it is bothering you in any way, then here are a few maneuvers that we here at Careerhunts are taking every day.

1. Commission domestic tasks as much as you can

The portion of work you can get done in a day marks all the success you will have throughout the day. Having to deal with a lot in a single day can be overwhelming, which in turn may give rise to a lot of stress.

We all know that negating your home and work while working from home may coincide and throw up your work-life balance into a state of chaos. The best way to bargain with it is to employ some household help to outsource your day-to-day chores.

Some adaptations can be as small as getting your menial tasks done by others. These changes will not only strengthen your execution at work and help you free up some time, but will also provide financial support to those in need in these trying times.

2. Reduce procrastination with the 90-20 rule

Do you find yourself sidestepping work due to procrastination and procrastinating because you have an excessive workload?

Well.. this ensures when you get stuck in a malicious cycle of boredom. This in turn lessens your ability to work and creates more and more stress, and we end up compromising our productivity and we end up having a lot more to do on our plate. But with a little willpower, this problem can be easily solved

One of the best ways to get it done is by adding structure to your day with the 90-20 rule that all of us at Career Hunts follow. This rule is quite easy to follow-

Work for 90 minutes straight without allowing yourself to get distracted and then take 20 mins to break to relax, and maybe get a bite to eat.

But, this only works if you follow this rule and stick to working seriously for 90 minutes and only then take 20 minutes off.

3. Find a creative outlet

Performing the same task every day for 6 days a week can be very irritating, and may make it hard to focus on the work at hand. finding a creative way out may help you operate a lot better.

So, it is recommended that you try and find your creative streak, or a gobby and do your best to fit it into your everyday life, as it will help you release a lot of pressure in your everyday troubles.

4. Regulate your work-life balance.

We all know how much work-life balance is important to operate during these trying times.

You may have a defined work-life balance, but it all is supposed to go to dogs in these weird times. And with work from home being the new normal, we have to work on a new equation and establish some new ground rules.

Here are some steps that we at Careerhunts follow that can help you too to get some work-life balance:

  • Get a set time to log in and log out

  • Establish a self-care routine to follow every day before getting down to work and after work

  • Find time to hydrate and work out

  • Follow early to bed and rise

  • Prioritize tasks and take them up in the order of most important to least

5. Don’t forget to take some time off

It docent matter if you are working or sitting free at home. But that doesn’t mean that you will have to be available all the time. it is very normal to feel overwhelmed and tired after a long day.

So, if needed, please use your vacation days to take a few days off for yourself. it will help you to relax and rewind yourself, and maybe give you the key to dealing with the stress.


Having to work from home is necessary as we have to maintain minimum contact and social distancing. But working from home is no cakewalk, as we will be constantly distracted by all the things we have to do at home.

And if you think it is becoming too much to deal with even with everything, then we recommend you visit a therapist, or seek professional help.

So, all the best!
