Why consider consulting?:
For experienced candidates who have not consulted before, these types of positions are temporary and are limited by project duration, which typically runs from 3 to 12 months. Many consultants prefer to form their own corporations, usually referred to as "1099" status, that offer the benefits of a corporation, including increased retirement funding. Consulting roles also usually pay a premium over your full-time salary and allow you to maintain your skills and resume while the economy is slow in full-time job growth. As the backlog of projects increase, many companies are looking to bring on consultants before they commit to hiring full-time employees. Additionally, some postions are temp-to-perm positions; clients will sometimes hire consultants, who have performed well on temporary projects, as full-time hires.
