I had once jumped to consulting from my original business of gem and jewellery. I was volunteering myself as a Joint secretary and treasurer of a community run school in India. I wanted to uplift standard of the school and went for ISO 9001 certification for the school. ISO 9000 was quite a new idea for an educational institute at that time (2000-01).
While working for the same I was fascinated with the Quality Management System and took a courseto be a lead auditor for ISO 9000.
I started consultancy for the same and worked for varieties of industries both in manufacturing and service sector e.g.airport,hospital,educational institutes, software companies, wire manufacturing industry, textile industry etc. But I found that my original business can pay me more so I came back to that and still I provide consultancy on a part time basis or I volunteer it to my friends and charitable/social orgs.
The experience has immensely benefited me in my own business.
Hi Experienced Men,
I am a young fresh Mechanical engineer just graduated this month. I wish to become a successful professional one day. I would like to know how consultants work.
Do they work like "freelancers" choosing their own time for work?
How much experience is needed to become a consultant?
Is consultancy field good for earning top dollar?
