Higher Pay and Transparency Top IT Consultant Demands in IQ Tech Pros Network Survey -- Polled IT Consultants Reveal Critical Career Issues in Newest Survey
IQ Tech Pros, the world's largest full-service IT integration network, today announced the findings of its latest network survey. The survey found higher pay and transparency are top priorities for consultants working on projects through a consulting or umbrella-type firm. Consultants also ranked on-time payments, corporate communications, and marketing support to help find new projects high on their list of needs.

"It's great to hear what's most important from the voice of the consultant. This information should help the industry cater more closely to the IT consultants' needs and improve the consulting career path which has been exploding over the last few years as more and more people leave the office for independent lifestyle," said Kashif Aftab, CEO of IQ Tech Pros. "We are pleased the feedback from this survey validates our focus and proves our business continues to align with what consultants look for as they decide on a business network partner and will continue working to build the best business model possible for our consultants."

Survey results also highlighted insurance costs and group benefits as the prime reasons that an independent consultant looks to join a consulting or umbrella-type company. Within those types of companies, respondents stressed the importance of feeling like part of the company and getting to know other consultants working with the firm.

Respondents currently list referrals, networking, and relationships with recruiters as the most effective approaches to find a new project.

I still don't get how is it largest integration service. What does it mean. This company has only 37 employees/independent contractors listed.
