What happens to my resume once I submit it to eCommQuest?
We will review your resume, enter you into our database and likely contact you to clarify any items on your resume. When we have a position that matches your experience, a Resource Manager will contact you to schedule an interview to review your background and job search criteria. This Resource Manager will be your main point of contact throughout your relationship with eCommQuest.

Will my resume be sent out to potential employers without my knowledge?
Never. Your resume will not be distributed anywhere without your prior consent. Your Resource Manager will discuss the job description, location, work environment and any applicable information with you before sending your resume to any of our Client Companies.

How long is the average contract assignment?
The length of an assignment will vary from client to client and project to project. Some are as short as 6 weeks and some last as long as 2 or more years. The average contract assignment is about 8-10 months.

How often will I be paid?
We pay our W2 employees every two weeks. Approved expenses will also be paid in this same cycle.

As a contractor will I be responsible for filing quarterly taxes and taking care of all my deductions?
As a W2 contractor, eCommQuest will take care of all your payroll deductions for you. If you are an Independent Contractor, you will be responsible for your own payroll deductions. We have a rigid Independent Contractor qualification process that each Independent Contractor must complete in order to qualify for this status.

What if I'm interested in full-time work?
In addition to contract work, eCommQuest offers full-time job opportunities. If you are thinking of a career change, contact eCommQuest to discuss your background and future career objectives. Our list of open permanent positions is constantly changing so getting into our database is important. Some of our consultants also work on what's called a "contract-to-hire” basis. In this scenario, a professional is brought in to work on a short-term project. Then, if the situation is a good fit, the opportunity could transition into a full-time position.

How long does it take to find an assignment?
The demand for skills varies quite a bit based on the economy and the latest technology, regulatory or consumer trends. Sometimes it can be only a few days or it could be several weeks to a couple of months. The best thing to do is to ensure we have your latest resume and expected availability. We will then match you against any positions that come up that fit your skills and objectives.
