Fancy Consulting For A Living? Here Are The Money Makers.

June 24, 2019 3:39 pm

If you have been in your field for a while, it might be time for you to look at the next steps. Typically, that becomes branching out into consultancy. Consultants are usually at the top of their game with many years of experience under their belts. They know all of the loopholes, the trends, and the compensation packets available are frankly – out of this world.

But they have the background to back it up, they have years of experience, the many (many) qualifications, and usually, their contact list is more than healthy. So they are worth what you are going to pay. They are the guys you call in when you need the real advice, from leading-edge procurement consultants to retirement consultants.

But, if you really want to consider consulting, then you should be aiming high. Aiming for those high paying jobs. And if you aren’t sure what they are there look no further.

Financial Advisory Consulting

Of course, to make money, you have to understand money, and financial advisors understand money like no one else. They are masters at making clean decisions about complex financial issues, and they handle more than one account at a time. The financial market is pretty massive, though, so you might find yourself looking into:

  • Transaction Services
  • Restructuring
  • Risk Management
  • Real Estate
  • Corporate Finance

They work very closely with their clients to make sure that they are providing the right information and backing it up with facts. Not only that but if you can make money for others so easily, you can make money for yourself with smart investments – a double whammy.

IT Consulting

IT consulting is really exciting, because IT & technology is always changing meaning that as well as everything they already know, they pick up information quickly and can apply it to their work with ease.

They will be able to advise and implement entire systems to large companies. IT has exploded into a large area. You’ll likely be looking into these areas:

  • Data Analytics
  • Software Management
  • Enterprise Architecture
  • Systems Integration

Business Consulting

Imagine having the ability to look at your company objectively, spot all of the processes that could be better managed – and being able to work out how best to do it. That is precisely what these guys do. They are also great for taking on challenging tasks like firing longtime employees, making cuts, and recommended different systems.

This is a pretty broad job, but they have a range of expertise and work hard to leverage a company into the best possible state. When you have to do the jobs that no one else wants to, of course, that will come at a cost.

However, it is worth noting that you can really make a consultancy position in any field. So long as you have the years and experience to back up those claims. You will need to be very forward thinking when it comes to getting clients to your door, but once you have taken on a couple of projects, you will be able to show your track record too.
