IT Consultant: Is Your Personality Up To Par? - Articles Surfing
Can you strike up a conversation with a stranger? Do you wake up on the right side of the bed every morning? Do you show up on time? All these variables will be important in your success as an IT consultant.
IT Consultant Traits: Are You Extroverted?
Computer consulting is very much a people business. You need to be humble; you need to be able to ask for help. You need to be extremely passionate about what you are doing.
It is a 7 day 24. The good thing about it is if you get the right kind of clients once you are doing this full time, then most of them are 9-5 or 8-4 types of shops and for the most part you are not going to get called in the evening.
IT Consultant Traits: Are You Patient?
Starting up a business like this is not an overnight success. Its all based on relationships and it can take anywhere from 3-6 months to get enough of them going, and a lot of times 6 months to a year to get enough of them going to build a solid consulting business that can support you on a full time basis.
Yet, you need to start somewhere. If you keep procrastinating it's just going to take longer and longer. Be realistic and be patient.
IT Consultant Traits: Do You Have a Positive Outlook?
There will be good days and bad days. You need to feel strongly and passionately about your business, growth and plan that you stay on track. So you are having a bad day you pull out your plan and you see where you are and what direction you need to go in.
A positive outlook yes you are putting your head out there. There are going to be some tough days, but tomorrow is going to be better. Can you just shake it off and move on?
IT Consultant Traits: Are You Reliable?
You need to be self-driven; nobody is going to be sitting there flogging you everyday. You will not have your boss. You need to be motivated by your inner drive. You might get some praise, but no one is going to be clapping for you.
