This may seem a bit off topic for Charleson, but times are tough, and there are people looking for opportunity. I have been working with the Business Management Consulting Firm IPA since 2000, and thought it would be a good idea to put the word out via this blog that employment opportunities exist for Savvy Business Managers with superior leadership skills. I’ll give you the bad news first. The job is 100% travel where leave Sunday night and come home for the weekend Friday evening. Many people that attempt to get started with IPA are unsuccessful, mostly because the job requires tremendous flexibility and adaptability. The work can be very gratifying to the point of being addictive, explaining why many consultants stick around in spite of the crazy travel. Anyway, here are the qualifications for a Business Consultant:
10 Years Senior Management Experience
Ability to work freely with MS Excel and Word
You have to survive a 10 day training/selection process. My class started with 23 and ended with 13. The work is very challenging and rewarding for those that have the business and leadership skills to affect change in small businesses, most of which are under $2 million in annual revenue and less than 15 employees.
If you’re interested, please get in touch with me so I can introduce you to the corporate recruiter. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll happily provide you with candid answers to your questions about what it’s really like, the good the bad, and the ugly. Happy job hunting.
