    You’ve worked hard to build your own business on your own terms. But it is a trade- off; for every bit of independence you gain, you also take on more personal responsibility and risk isolation. Your neck is on the line to get the job done right, and done fast, every time. Even though you’re on your own, you’re still part of a team, except that team doesn’t feel obligated to talk to you or help. It’s a delicate balancing act.

    Now That You’ve Got the Job, It’s Time to Get It Done. Fast.

    Great news! All that effort spent writing a proposal and bidding on a job paid off, you got it. Now you’ve got to deliver, and time is running out. Plus, you’ve got to line up the next job too. To get this job and the next one, you need to ensure your tools offer the latest capabilities to meet the clients’ requirements. To get both jobs done fast, you need to be as efficient as possible. That means building your own collection of “secret sauce” library items and design blocks and leveraging as much outside design content as possible.

    Get a project done faster so you can move on to the next one


    Collaborating with the Outside

    Even though you’re working on your part of the project alone, you’re still working as part of a project team. Just like when you’re sitting at a desk in a mega conglomerate, you still need to collaborate with MCAD designers to make sure the board fits, you still need to share your designs with other engineers and managers, and you still need to send files off to manufacturing. The problem is, you’re not sitting at a desk in a mega conglomerate and the rest of your team isn’t next to you. How do you collaborate with these people when you can’t just walk over to their desk and ask?

    Work Together With Key Outside Stakeholders
    Ensure the entire project team, in which you play a crucial part, is in sync.


    No One to Count On But Yourself

    The life of a contract engineer is inherently lonely. Usually it means working alone on projects and left to fend for yourself. Without continuous external stimulation and interaction with other people like you, how do you ensure your skills are up-to-date? What do you do if you find yourself stuck? Without the right support, your independence can be a major burden.
