Show of hands – who would like to make $300/hr doing executive consulting in Boston?
Perhaps that’s too far east and you’d be content with completely reinventing health care in Honolulu, Hawaii?
Or – you’ve got a role that needs a top-level management consultant like the ones above, and you are ready to enter a world where you can find someone of this level without having to screen, pre-screen, and *re*-screen applicants. And without paying an agency. And for free. (For free?) And possibly find an applicant who uses better grammar than *this* paragraph!
These are just ridiculous fantasies, right?
Good news: today those ridiculous fantasies can become your reality, because inContract is now live.
If you’re a talented freelance management consultant or a company that has been in need of one, you’ve felt the pain, and you’ve felt the difficulty of matching truly talented people to truly deserving roles. So did we. In particular, so did our CEO Kurt Wilkinson. If you’ve seen his inContract profile, you can probably understand why so many companies have looked to him to help point them to qualified people. Kurt had been almost buried alive by requests for referrals of fellow management consultants from the companies that desperately needed them, or even other freelancers that were looking for people to help them out on a project!
inContract is our solution to this problem – a professional network for pre-screened freelance management consultants and the companies interested in hiring them.
From our handsome “About Us” page:
“this is where we see the biggest gap in the freelance market. We are not the creators of the talent marketplace concept, but the large freelance markets that exist today are saturated with technical talent of varying quality, not pre-vetted management consulting talent. Our focus for inContract is quality over quantity, focused specifically on management consulting.”
I know, I know – you didn’t come here to read regurgitated yet excellent and well-crafted website copy that you can read anytime; you’re here for the insider perspective from one of inContract’s founders! All right then, leave this between you and I: inContract is where the world-changers meet the world-changing.
Companies tell us that hiring good people is hard. We agree. We want to make it easier, and we want you to find great people. Unbelievable, unforgettable people.
Consultants tell us that they want to spend more time actually doing the things they do best, without having to sift through 100+ “management consulting” results of which only one or two are even *relevant* to the talents they have. We agree. You’re very good at making companies more effective and efficient – why shouldn’t finding your next role be just as swift and productive as you are?
“This sounds amazing, and it’s free? What’s the catch? There has to be one, right?” Well, the bad news (if you can call it that) is that inContract is focused exclusively on the management consulting industry *and* we pre-screen to ensure the quality of the marketplace, so it’s obviously not for everyone. On the other hand, the fantastic news is that if you are a consultant or company that is part of that industry, then we are definitely for you, as you can say goodbye to having to sit down for several hours going through either unqualified applicants or irrelevant roles. If we weren’t very confident of that, we wouldn’t have bothered building it for you. And now it’s yours!
“Wait, you said part 1…what’s part 2?”
*laughs* Oh…if only I could *tell* you that without giving it away…trust me. Have I steered you wrong thus far?
