Technical Consultant Job Description
Technical consultants come up with solutions to technical problems and spend much of their workday in front of computers. While some work in-house for individual companies, many tech consultants are self-employed, and clients seek their services on an as-needed basis. Oftentimes, technical consultants are part of a larger design team and work closely with other professionals. Technical consultants tend to work full-time but may need to put in extra hours to finish a project. Traveling to a client’s location is common.
Any industry that uses technology could benefit from the services of a technical consultant. The demand for technical consultants, as categorized by the Bureau of Labor Statistics under “Software Developers, Applications,” is expected to increase by 19 percent through 2024, with more than 23,800 job openings each year.
