Section 5: Your Consulting Career

At this point the pure “consulting” portion of this book has ended. As a bonus section to this book, I’ve included a collection of short stories that are related to your “career” in general.

Because I worked at least ten different jobs before graduating college, then started my career as an aerospace engineer, then switched to being a Unix Administrator, then a Programmer, and then a Programming Consultant, I’ve had the opportunity to see hundreds of work situations, and I’ve thought a lot about what I wanted in my career.

In this section I’ll share a few notes on what I’ve learned about “Having a career.” I’ll again explore the topic of “attitude,” and how it shapes your success, and also look at the employer/employee relationship.
