Monthly for me but make sure your monthlies are ones you can trust. You don't want to get stiffed out of 4-8 weeks work (depending on your billing cycle) on a no-pay.
I plan to do a few by the job simply because they cannot afford a big monthly bill all at once. Work with your customers, you will get a sense of what type of people they are. If you get bad vibes, simply turn down the work, there are better fish in the sea.
