I've been looking for ways to supplement my income, and have been considering looking for some part-time consulting work. The thing is, I only have about 4 years post-grad school experience and am fairly new to the city where I live, so I don't have many contacts. I don't think establishing a consultancy of my own would get me much business, but I do think I have some valuable skills to offer existing consultants/firms. Has anyone ever gotten part-time side work from a consultant? If you are a consultant, do you hire people on a part-time or project-by-project basis? How would you suggest bringing this up to people I want to work with/for?
