Of course it will. I've got 30 of them to prove it. And many more to come.

But the key point in there is retain past lessons. Without that, one is forever condemned
to reinvent the wheel or repeat past errors.

One way of ensuring that is to stop running away from problems. In other words: get a long term gig and make it work, instead of the "hit-and-run" that characterizes so many of the temp jobs.

In the coming economic storm, I can't
emphasize the importance of this any
