A consultant offers expert advice in their areas of study such as education, science, math, medicine, or teaching. They often operate as their own company and they are not employed by the client, as is usually the case with an in-house public relations team. A consultant assesses situations, analyzes information, and presents proposals for action. The consultant then performs the proposed work for a fee within an agreed time frame (short-term or long-term).
With many companies downsizing, more people have started their own consulting companies so the competition can be fierce, depending on the area of the country. The beauty of consulting is you are your own boss and will be able to set your own hours but before deciding on consulting, be sure to have a business plan in place, a few months salary in the bank, and a strong desire to succeed.
