About two and a half years ago I set up a SharePoint consulting business in Sydney with a colleague of mine. It was a very new experience for me, learning how to run a business in addition to dealing with the technology aspects.
2.5 years down the road and we are still around. In fact, we are now ready to take on the challenge of permanent staff. So if you know someone interested in graduate/junior role in a SharePoint consulting business, ask them to get in touch with us at email@example.com.
No SharePoint experience required, but it is an obvious advantage. We are really looking for someone with an aptitude for technology, who enjoys working in an environment where they are constantly learning (and challenged) and has strong written and verbal communication skills. An IT degree won’t hurt, but its not essential.
