Although I'm not looking for a new position until I have a few things lined up (namely, certifications), I posted my resume on Dice just to see what kind of opportunities might open up for me. As soon as I posted, I got a number of inquiries from various recruiters for contract-to-hire positions.

I figure you're working for the recruiting company for x months, but then how does the pay get worked at the end of the contract period? Does the client / employer (assuming you passed the trial period) pay the same rate, or is there a re-negotiation of compensation terms?
Hopefully-useful stuff I've written:
