IT Consultant Republic published more than 50 articles on technology, management, and career topics in July. Even avid TechRepublic readers could have missed an article or a helpful download. But we’re making it easy for you to catch up. Here’s a rundown of the top five articles according to page views in IT Consultant Republic for July:
  1. If your resumes haven’t been landing you new engagements, perhaps you aren’t emphasizing the two things that employers want to see: the results you produce and the employer’s needs. “Avoid the resume trap: Make your resume relevant” offers examples of what you can highlight to get yourself noticed.
  2. A service level agreement is commonly used to help establish a contractor’s obligations to a client or to nail down how an in-house IT staff will address a department’s needs. Before you put your SLA in writing, read “Want to derail your SLA? Make these five mistakes” so that your planning doesn’t go to waste.
  3. In a crowded field, what can consultants do to ensure that the world knows what services they offer? “Marketing your services as a consultant” offers some advice on getting the word out.
  4. What good is it if your top-notch work is met with an unpaid invoice? Like everyone else, you have to pay the bills. But how do you work with a client to collect your fees? “Collect on unpaid invoices and keep the client” offers five tactics to get the money you’ve earned.
  5. Sometimes, finding a new opportunity means putting your billable rate aside and concentrating on a technological solution. That’s what one consultant did in “Well-chosen free work can lead to paid contracts.” Be sure to check out the accompanying discussion featuring members’ comments on this approach.
