Small companies and Startups rely on outstanding people with multiple abilities, not specialists. But finding the right person with the right abilities and personality takes time, and meanwhile what do you do while searching for that person, waiting for them to become available, and getting them onboard?
Contractors can help, but they often desire fulltime pay and commitments of several months or more. And finding the right Contractor can be just as difficult as finding the right employee. Plus there are strict labor laws for relationships with Contractors.
What about a Consultant? They are the ultimate short-term professional working for hours or days, and willing to work part-time, even from home with their own equipment. So a Consultant can often start immediately, work minimal hours, and keep vital projects going while the search continues for the Right Person to hire. Afterwards, a Consultant can continue to offer an Independent Viewpoint in Design Reviews, help solve tough problems, and get the next generation started.
