Definition of a Consultant

 
#1 Definition of a Consultant

"A consultant is someone out of work but still carrying a brief case"

"Consultants are people who borrow your watch and tell you what time it is, and then walk off with the watch." - Robert Townsend.

Do you disagree?

It surprises me that freshers from uni with zero experience go into consulting. How can you solve a client's problem when you haven't got a clue?

Freshers do not solve client's problems.

They conduct analysis that enables people with more experience and more of a clue to help a client solve his/her problems.

Cool G to D (#3)

I believe it is better to get your hands dirty first in an industry before going into consulting. Ever listened to a lecturer who has never had work experience? They sound overly theoretical and suggest ideas that are simply utopian. Same with consultants! Yet, when practitioners want to get a consulting job, recruiters ask whether they have had a consulting experience. How ironical!
