    Who's the client - might give 'em a call.

    I'm one of the rare one's, got my contract direct but the client said they needed to go through one of their preferred suppliers (I got to choose), as I had allready agreed a rate I said that the agency can take what they like on top. I don't care if it's 10% or 50%, I'm happy with the agreed rate I get...

    P.S. I also have one of those degrees, nowt to do with computers though, like alot of people on here.

    Could be a good topic in the Light Relief section : How unrelated to your current gig is your degree or higher education?
    Sval-Baard Consulting Ltd - we're not satisfied until you're not satisfied.

    Nothing says "you're a loser" more than owning a motivational signature about being a winner.

    Very... I did a tree hugging degree. Admittedly I can can see a tree from the office.

    Er, no. If you want big bucks you have to go out into the world and earn them. And pimping *is* a skill.

    I left uni 5 years ago. But I just started contracting and I'm pretty shocked to realise that I'm contracted to a bloody recruitment consultant who did 5 minutes work to match me with this client, yet gets to basically earn money from my day rate for the next year. I go out and work and he watches the rolling in!
    And how much more are you getting now than you did as a permie?
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    I think I see what has happened here...

    Conversation with agent...

    Client : I can handle all the good guys with professional attitudes. Just need you to get some wet behind the ears bod to do the crap stuff. They have their heads stuck so far up their own arses I don't want to deal with them so you can...

    Agent : What rate do I advertise.

    Client : 400 and what you can rip him off for you can keep as long as I don't have to put up with any of his bedwetting holier than though graduate bulltulip

    Agent : Ahh I have just the person... be back to you shortly.. <click>
