Becoming an IT consultant can provide freedom for IT professionals. Many of my friends have opted for becoming consultants and IT always ranks high on the list of niches. IT consultants advise businesses and organizations about how they can best use information technology to meet their strategic objectives. Some consultants also help plan, implement, develop and manage IT systems.
WIkipedia’s entry on information technology consulting opportunities notes that there’s a lot of overlap between IT consultants and management consultants.
Plus Magazine has an interesting interview with a guy who works as a freelance information technology consultant.
