Today I had a new one; I bid to work on a project. It was short duration and limited hours. I won the bid … and I received an employment offer instead of a contract.
Most of the customers I do work for are very technical. They have their own IT departments, often millions or tens of millions of dollars of equipment, and trained operators.
There are times I work for one person who isn’t all that technical but has an automation need. I did a project for one such person earlier this week.
