Why consulting jobs are on the rise worldwide
By: Sam Gucci
Every single type of job in every single industry is getting more and more competitive. The effects of the global pandemic are well documented but one of the main things it did was speed up the innovation for certain companies or accelerate the demise of many industries. Companies are fighting now more than ever for every advantage and one of these ways is to invest in a consultancy. Companies are looking to outsource expertise and as skill sets are becoming more specialized, it makes more sense to leave it to the experts. Why would I trust someone for a task they rarely do when I can trust someone who dedicates everyday to this task to make a living. They hone their craft to pay the bills. They must be good at what they do to feed their families. When it can make the difference between success and failure for a business, it becomes an obvious decision. At the same time companies are making these decisions to lean on consultants, individuals are forced to look inwards. With a turbulent and unpredictable job market, people have looked in the mirror to find out how they create another stream of income which leads to monetizing their area of expertise. Everyone has something they are good at and people are finding ways to create a service from their lifelong skills now more than ever.
