Finding a Consultant Job as a Senior

ExecuNet Micro Bar Executive Openings!

Someone once defined consulting as the business of providing advice to firms in trouble, on the move, or trying to do what they do better, faster, and cheaper. The employers of these consultants describe it a bit more down to earth as doing the work that a company does not want to do, or cannot do with their own resources. It is an activity best suited for those who are able to think on their feet and are able to assimilate situations quickly.

Working as a consultant on a temporary or project basis is a viable option. The advantage of this type of work is that you can generate income, while choosing which assignments to pursue and, setting your own schedule. By working through a staffing firm, you will receive career guidance, insight about emerging technologies and job leads. Staffing firms also can give you a good start on the types of companies that are targeting professionals with your abilities and background.

For some professionals, working is a financial necessity. This is probably more true today, in 2009, than ever. Many people have lost money in their 401k plans and from their retirement savings. For many others, however, working beyond 65 is a choice. Regardless of why you work, the opportunities are abundant and will likely continue to grow. To maximize your marketability, you should use our self assessment page in order to make sure, what you want to do. Then, when you have ascertained that, position yourself as an adaptable, yet proven professional who’s at the forefront of your industry.

If your experience is in the financial area (accountants, auditors, forensic financial work, bookkeeping, financial systems, tax work, controlling etc.), Robert Half International Inc. is one of the world’s first and largest specialized staffing firm with a global network of more than 350 offices throughout North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. They are always looking for well qualified people. For more information about their professional services, please visit www.rhi.com .

There are numerous consulting companies, you could approach Bain & Co. , Boston Consulting Group , Deloitte Touche, Ernst & Young, KPMG , PricewaterhouseCoopers etc. As you probably noticed, many of these companies have an accounting background. But this does not mean that you have to be an accountant to work for them. In fact, all of them, employ multiple disciplines and if you have good skills and knowledge in an industry, you are probably of interest to them, provided they have an assignment in that area. If you want to try some more localized consulting groups, you can find some of them through Google.



Smaller Locally based Consulting Companies


Though many of the smaller local consulting groups do not have a web site and their existence and client acquisition depends on "word of mouth".

You could also try to get jobs as a freelancer. Sologig connects freelance, contract, and part-time employees with over 100,000 projects in every career field. Sologig describes itself as "the niche community where top contractors and consultants connect with those quality employers looking to fill contract and consulting positions quickly and efficiently".

Working as a freelance consultant is not always easy. There are several problems you might face, some of them will have to do with your seniority and some with the fact, that you might have had a position in your former professional life that was considerably higher, than what you get offered as a freelance consultant.

If you have worked at a certain seniority level, many clients might be worried that you will be will be bored, if you accept an assignment for a job that is at a lower level then the last job you held during your main professional life.

Other problems you might face as a Senior in consulting is, that you could be potentially intimidating to the person who is your client. This often occurs, if the manager that employed you is senior and the the manager you are dealing with is younger and therefore intimidated. He, or she, might be unwilling to cooperate with someone who could be their parent. Therefore, you will have to be careful, how you deal with clients and their staff in an assignment.

All of these issues can be worked out. Though, they required diligence and application on your part. It will be a whole new challenge in your life!
