Many established professionals consider the transition from employee to consultant as a welcome opportunity to revitalize their career. A successful transition brings new challenges, broadens options and provides greater control of the future.

If you are considering a career as a consultant, or if you have already made the switch but need support, JW Associates can help you address the essential issues:

Which skills will you market?

  • What do you really want to do?
  • Do you know what your market is? Who needs your services?
  • How will you set your skills apart? Why should clients select you?

Can you market your skills effectively?

  • Do you have a marketing document, other than your resume, to establish your value to clients?
  • Are your presentation skills appropriate for gaining consulting work, rather than applying for a job?
  • Do you have the confidence to sell your services for a suitable fee? Can you negotiate effectively?

How will you establish and grow a client base?

  • Do you know how to build a client base in difficult times?
  • Can you network effectively? Where should you start?
  • How can you build visibility, credibility and goodwill with prospective or existing clients?
