Why would currently employed professionals join a consulting platform?
Our consultants join for a myriad of reasons. Of those who are between roles, or who are fully independent consultants, they typically see StealthForce as a way to expand their outreach for projects. Likewise, those who are currently employed join for varying reasons. Senior or semi-retired professionals often are looking towards the next phase of their careers, hoping to step back from full-time employment, and seeking to build a pipeline of consulting clients. They also liken StealthForce to opting-in as conference panelists or industry commentators; it's a way to continue to serve as an authority in the real estate community. For more junior professionals, the incentives include supplementing their income in their free time, growing their networks and being considered for full-time roles at other firms, and simply being able to select the areas on which they want to focus, rather than having to accept whatever an employer assigns to them. Across the network, consultants regularly share an increasing prioritization of quality of life, and a reticence to remain tied to major cities in the long term "just because that's where the jobs are."
How can I position myself to obtain the maximum number of project invitations?
Specialization and demonstrated experience are key. When applying to the network, be sure to share your complete resume, in word format, including detailed deal histories. The best way to rise to the top of a match process is to provide data demonstrating why you're the most experienced candidate in a particular arena. Another way to raise your profile is to write a guest post for our website (to be included under our News section, and shared with the community).
