Today I received an outside recruiter email asking if i’m interested in a consulting opportunity paid in hourly rate by the client to join a conference call with the client for about 30-60 minutes to provide brief phone consultation without disclosing my employer info. Does anyone do this type of consulting outside of your workplace and can share your experience?

Pretty sure you have to disclose that to EY and ask for permission.

yeah that seems the case though i don’t see any independent issue with the recruiting company

so this recruiter is from Guidepoint. No one heard about this consulting firm? I googled it which seems a pretty big expert network company. i’m not crazy for these opportunities at the moment but just curious if anyone has done it and how the experience was. If I leave big4 and want to do my own consulting business, i wonder if this would be helpful building the related experience

Risk consulting?

not really. they look for high level comments on the specific tax market, insights or trending. Until i agree to the contract they would not disclose details of client’s questions

I was offered a position at Deloitte for ~26k more than I’m making currently, but they told me that in 2.5 years when the contract is over I will be out of a job. Obviously I’ll be able to network within those two years and probably find something more permanent, so it’s very similar to gig work at BAH. I also just started a new project at BAH last month so I feel uneasy leaving after a month. Can someone at Deloitte give me more insight about PDM work at the company?
