  1. Hello there. How can I become an independent contractor out from Canada for Eagle company? I have 25 years experience as a .NET developer

    1. Apply for contract roles requiring .net experience via Eagle.
      You will have to open your own corporation (or sole proprietorship) and have banker and accountant. Should you grow your business to more than one man band, you might need a lawyer as well.
