Job SeekersProfit, Prosper, & Grow
We recognize that an IT staffing firm is only as good as the consultants it works with. PeopleSERVE’s commitment to IT consultants is to:
- Put you first – We live by the “Consultants First” philosophy. We know we have no business without you. PeopleSERVE wants to build a long-term relationship with you, so we promise to treat you fairly and with the respect that you deserve.
- Position you to succeed – When we place a consultant in a project assignment, we believe one thing above all: You can succeed there. In every engagement, we consider your skills, your experience, and your interests. And above all, we make a special effort to know you.
- Support you on the job – When you work with PeopleSERVE, we have your back. You are not out there alone on a job site. We stay in touch with you and with your manager, helping to ensure that things are going smoothly. And if they don’t, we’re ready to jump in and trouble-shoot a situation to resolve it in a way that’s fair to all parties.
Strategies for Career Success
Whether you’re making a career of IT consulting, or you aspire to be a full-time employee of one company, the basic strategies for career success are the same. For starters, ask yourself: Where do I want to go? What do I need to get there? What are the steps along the path? If you can’t answer all those questions today, don’t worry. They are big questions, and the answers can be complicated. Seek perspective and guidance from other people you respect and trust.
Most likely you will need to update your skills and/or learn new ones to stay current with technology – now, and throughout your career. In a field like IT, “continuing education” must truly be continuous; embrace it. PeopleSERVE can help identify training and professional development resources that meet your needs.
And don’t expect your career path to be a straight line. For example, even if your goal is to work for a large organization, the best way to get more responsibility sooner may be at a small organization; you can then leverage that experience to get the position you want, at the company you want. Also, don’t underestimate the importance of growing and nurturing your network. Make as many professional connections as possible by attending networking events, navigating through LinkedIn, and spending time with colleagues.
Most importantly, recognize that you are in charge of your career. The primary responsibility for planning and action rests with you.
Don’t Build Your IT Consulting Career by Yourself
As an IT consultant, you know that bringing a project in on time and within budget requires a skilled team.
Why settle for less when building your career?
At PeopleSERVE, we take an active interest in your career, not just your weekly time sheet. That’s why consultants like working with us. When we look for your next assignment, it’s with your next career step in mind.
And beyond assignments, PeopleSERVE provides career support services: Resume development, interview coaching, skills assessment, and much more.
