I am an independent contractor and recently saw a job posting for the same work I do as a contractor. I do not want to be an employee but would like the organization to know that I specialize in that type of work. How do I approach the organization about my services? By the way they have an immediate need. I'm thinking I should introduce my company and services and ask for a meeting.

    Can't hurt to try. It would probably help to emphasize all the "savings" they get by not hiring a new employee - benefits, insurance, matching taxes, HR department paperwork to process new employees, loss of productivity from someone else having to train the new employee, regular review meetings, etc. Add to that the benefits of a contractor - no long-term commitment, payments based on performance, all the tools to do the tasks are operational and configured for maximum productivity, etc. Create a proposal, formally, and present it to them. The practice can be good, even if it don't work. – user16080 May 7 '17 at 2:45
  • Thanks Gypsy Spellweaver for your response! I applied for the job and they contacted me back within the hour. I have my interview tomorrow and I will present my consulting services and hope all goes well. This is definitely taking me out of my comfort zone but the practice will do me good. – Eve May 10 '17 at 1:59
