Consulting Contracting Assignments
www.VentureKnowledge.com is an Australian group offering an alternative for experienced Contractor and Consulting Professionals seeking assignments.
Unlike LinkedIn, VentureKnowledge.com is a specialisation of contracting and consulting professionals. And it is not open to anyone. Members are pre-screened, have at least seven years professional experience with one area of core expertise and pay a nominal membership fee of $250 per year.
Managers from organisations register at no cost to become a VentureKnowledge client and can freely search and connect with members directly to discuss assignments. Once a connection is made, the relationship remains between the member and the client. There are no “middle-man” costs. VentureKnowledge simply facilitates the connection between professionals and organisations.
Benefits for Professionals include:
Organisations come to you. Registered clients actively seek out members and make direct contact with you regarding potential assignments.
It’s a free service for clients to connect with you. Registered clients include technology companies, consultants, financial services, major retailers, media, manufacturing, design firms etc.
You manage the relationship with your client. Once a client initiates contact with you, the relationship thereafter is between the two of you. You agree terms for any assignment, which may lead to repeat opportunities or even permanent employment. VentureKnowledge has no involvement beyond facilitating the introduction.
You tap into the hidden job market. The majority of contracting and consulting opportunities are never advertised.
As a pre-qualified network, VentureKnowledge is an endorsement of your professionalism and expertise.
VentureKnowledge performs ongoing marketing and business development, regularly promoting its members to clients, while continually adding new clients who are seeking quality professionals for contracting and consulting assignments.
For the cost of a couple of networking events, the 12 months membership of AUD$250 is an investment to efficiently and effectively source assignments.
Quality professionals from all backgrounds who are serious about contracting or consulting should consider applying for membership. At less than 70 cents per day it's a low-risk investment.
