I am looking to start contracting as I come from a delivery background where I have done a lot of business analysis, portfolio management, project management and program management.
How do I look for contracts?

I wish I knew.
Pretty much you have to already know people.

You can start with a good LinkedIn profile, awesome resume, and probably a website that makes you look like a consulting company. Don't use cheesy ugly templates. Do something nice.

Cold calling isn't easy. I know people that work hard writing articles and giving speeches to promote their business. I don't know how well it works. Sometimes they seem desperate, so maybe not that well.

The hardest part of most businesses is sales.

In the process of being promoted @B4 but I don’t like the people I work for and I’m on the project from hell. The promo has taken so long that I’ve looked elsewhere despite it being my 2nd promo in 3 years. I haven’t had much traction until this past week where I was approached by 4 recruiters with really compelling roles (including FAANG). I know it doesn’t hurt to talk to them but am I an ass for excepting the promo while continuing to look/possibly exiting in the near future?
