My Medical Device Sales Career

I am noticing that a number of the Job Seekers who have been calling or emailing me lately have resorted (hate to call it that, but that is exactly how almost all of you have termed it) to self employment, part time employment or some other form of 1099 Temp Word to survive if you have been unemployed for some time.  Many pharma reps. have been unemployed from full time employment and are working for firms that provide full time work WITHOUT any benefits.  I am going to add a few links and sites to this discussion to help those of you who want some resources in this area.  Most of you are shy to write, BUT if you have found temp work, 1099 work or have found a way to make your own money...then please feel free to share in this discussion too!
