Contemplating a career change to become an IT consultant but feeling overwhelmed by the many questions and challenges you face? You are not alone. These times are challenging and taking the leap to a consultant role may leave you with many questions. Will I have job security? How long will I be contracted at a client? Will I have continuous work and income? Will I have to travel? These are questions that I asked myself two years ago as I contemplated the move to a full-time IT consultant. I had these same questions and am happy to report that the benefits of consulting far outweigh the angst that I felt making a change.
