Independent Consultant - how to put on resume?Hi there, I've been working as an independent consultant for the last year. In this time, I've had a number of clients that are geographically varied. My question is: on my resume, shall I list these clients? There are about 4, and one or two are names worth mentioning - one being a startup that... 2 years 3 months
MS Office Specialist CertificationsHi there. I'm looking to get into economic consulting, or economic research. I'm considering getting the MS Office Specialist certifications. I'm already very comfortable with the main Office programs and, looking at the syllabi, would have no trouble with these. I just wonder if it's worth the... 2 years 4 months

I agree somewhat with whalesquid123, your concluding thoughts are not really what I thought they would be - it DOES sound a bit like you're saying that your main takeaway was that you should've entered the rat race sooner. Nonetheless... 2 years 4 months

I'm married, and don't currently work full time (by choice partially, but also by circumstance). I will be entering the full-time market soon, and it's something I worry about - I love spending time with my wife. But I also... 2 years 5 months

I've been out of the job for a little while owing to a number of reasons, and while it was tough at first (and still can be), I've done a lot of the things you've said and it helps.
