The connection with ProData Consult is a distinct advantage
When I chose to quit my full-time job to become a freelance consultant. I needed to be able to seek out the challenges and projects, which would be suitable for me – and not just be a part of a company's pipeline. As a full-time employee, you are not always the one best suited to accomplish a specific task. But as a consultant, you can take on projects where you get to put your talents to use in the most optimal way.
But projects don’t grow on trees, so I started uploading my resume to different IT consulting firms. ProData Consult was the first to call. I hadn’t expected anything this explosive: they were very attentive and had a very outgoing energy. Before I knew it, I met with a Sourcing Specialist, who helped me refine my CV, to get the emphasis right. I was also introduced to the Sales Manager, who told me he would go out and “sell” me straight away. A few days later, I was in a meeting with my first client. The course of events more than exceeded my expectations!
It wasn’t ProData Consult that made me take the plunge into freelancing, but they make my dream possible. On my own, I wouldn’t be able to get the big assignments, since the companies that I find interesting and who have the big projects, all hire through consultancy firms. The connection with ProData Consult is a distinct advantage because their large customers provide me with my bread and butter. And I get to run my own small projects of interest on the side.
