The Consultant Identity: Can Your Microsoft Dynamics GP Pro Deliver?
Several weeks ago a business owner I know was lamenting that everyone is now a salesperson. As he sees it, anyone who had ever worked in a mall kiosk was calling himself a salesperson and applying for jobs that required real selling, not just the ability to unbox another iPhone.
I understand his point. "Engineering" lost some of its cachet when we started to re-label garbage workers as "Sanitation Engineers". I would add the job title "consultant" to the list of professions headed down that same tired route as people who used to be "contractors" assume the consultant's title.
