As a contractor, we have overcome many obstacles through the years to find the perfect job. We have conquered government shutdowns and sequestrations, and just when we thought we had seen it all, we now are battling a pandemic. Every time something challenges us, we become more and more flexible in finding a new job or staying in a role that has not been the ideal fit. The last six months have needed us to go above and beyond anything we have overcome before. We now have to treat each day as a new day and a new opportunity to learn how to weave our way around our work and family obligations until we achieve a new normal.
