ConsultingCrossing Finds Consulting Jobs Are Booming Through Current Economic Hardship

April 07, 2008   |  PDF version  PDF version

Pasadena, CA — With much of the U.S. professional community in a frenzy about the current downturn in the economy and job market, consultants from a series of industries are finding that things aren’t so bad after all, according to ConsultingCrossing.

It seems that consultants are becoming hot commodities these days due to failing business in a variety of industries. As a result, ConsultingCrossing (, the consulting world’s fastest growing job board, found that the number of consultant jobs added to the site in January had doubled the following month in February.

Along with this, the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Career Guide to Industries has named management, scientific, and technical consulting services as the fastest-growing and one of the highest-paying industries to work in today.

The U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Career Guide to Industries also states that the consulting industry’s job growth is expected to reach just about an 80% jump between now and 2016. Consultants are projected to earn 78% more in wages and salaries between now and 2016, regardless of their industries of choice. Consulting entices job seekers because of the job’s schedule as well; most consultants can be their own bosses and choose when they work.

Consulting is predicted to be one of the more sought-after job markets in the coming years because of its attractive nature and salary potential. This means that competition will be fierce between now and 2016, with more educated and experienced consultants landing more jobs.

Testimonial of the Week

What I liked about the service is that it had such a comprehensive collection of jobs! I was using a number of sites previously and this took up so much time, but in joining EmploymentCrossing, I was able to stop going from site to site and was able to find everything I needed on EmploymentCrossing.
