A consultant is a person who is an independent worker but who offers his or her services to companies in capacities that fit with his or her skillsets. When a client organization brings a consultant on board with a fee-for-service compensation arrangement, it is his or her job to then provide assistance and advice with whatever the company is working on. The job is not limited to simply providing expert information and training to company employees, however. It also often includes using that expertise to develop, present and make recommendations for new ideas, methods and projects. If company administrators can afford the fees, bringing in a consultant is a great way for the business to hit the ground running on some new initiatives that would otherwise be uncharted territory.
