The last few years have drastically changed how the world views remote work. There is no denying that COVID-19 has completely reshaped what workplaces will look like forever. What does this mean for advisory work?
Remote advisory work is the best outlet for professionals to sustain - and even enhance - their careers during both times of uncertainty and times of prosperity. For starters, its benefits are abundant. It provides supplemental income, helps build new connections, offers professional development, and diversifies work portfolios, just to name a few. Best of all - it can all be done remotely.
The ability to work remotely is a gift in and of itself, but even more beneficial are the opportunities that come from greater workplace flexibility. Meetings take place virtually, either over the phone, on video conferences, or through email, providing you with advantages that most full-time jobs lack.
Advisors are hired to help CEOs and other C-suite executives strategize and develop roadmaps, so CEOs often seek guidance on a per hour or per project basis, rather than hiring a full-time employee, to address one or more specific challenges they’re facing. One particular project may only involve a single hour phone call, or it could last a month over a series of one-hour meetings, and as the advisor you are in control of setting the days and times that best suit your schedule. This allows you to take on as much, or as little, advisory work as you want.
Eliminating time spent commuting to and from meetings also opens the door for busy executives who would otherwise not have time to take on additional work. Now, executives can schedule time throughout their day for advisory work that still allows them to maintain their full-time job.
Virtual communication makes it possible to work from anywhere in the world, and advisory work is no exception. Since most advisory work involves providing leadership teams with information and resources, rather than performing individual tasks, everything can be done over the phone or through video conferencing and emails.
Remote advisory work empowers companies to now cast a broader net to hire the most talented advisors, regardless of where they live, and advisors can now accept work outside of what would otherwise need to be within reasonable commuting distance.
Because companies have the flexibility to hire advisors from anywhere in the world, many turn to professional networks, like AdvisoryCloud, to find qualified advisors that match their needs.
