IT Consultant: Transition to Full-Time

IT Consultants who want to go from moonlighting to full-time need to prepare first. Take the necessary steps so you can realize your dream of becoming a full-fledged IT consultant.

If you are working a full-time day job and moonlighting as an IT consultant, you need to know a few things before transitioning to becoming a full-time IT consultant.

Take the following into consideration and avoid the common mistakes many IT consultants make when transitioning from part-time to full-time, self-employed consulting.  

Rule #1 – Don’t Make Assumptions 

A lot of moonlighting IT consultants are initially so enamored and so taken in by the idea of getting some self-employed income that they never stop to plan ahead and think through where it’s all leading.

It just isn’t serving them correctly. You will want to nip this in the bud and start off on the right track.

Rule #2 – Plan Ahead

A lot of the moonlighting IT consultant’s dream of being full time consultants.  Sadly, a lot of them are never going to make it because of one simple shortcoming: they’re not planning ahead for how and when the transition is going to take place.

They’re hoping it’s going to take place, but they’re not planning for it.

The Bottom Line about the IT Consultant

If you are a moonlighting IT consultant and want to transition into full-time consulting, make sure you plan ahead.  Don’t get caught burying your head in the sand or taking huge risks that don’t make sense.
