What Is A Consultant?

There seems to be some confusion. 

A 'consultant' is someone that has expert knowledge that contracts in to an organisation. 

A 'consultant' has expert knowledge from years of working inside certain industries and companies. Like 10 years..not 6 months or a degree because we've all go those.

A 'consultant' has specialist skills within your industry. They're not bored and thinking they might 'consult'. It's a step up not an opt out.

A 'consultant' that has never had a job is 'someone that lives with their Mum'. They are not a 'consultant'.

Please refer to LinkedIn and check your 'consultant' 's experience.

You may want to look for qualifications, a job, and brand experience. 

Hope this clears it up.
