Hi all,

I recently joined this group and I know some of you here. Do you think being an independent or a part of a group will help someone who wishes to break into the industry...?

Thanks Ellen- I was using the Advanced Search on LinkedIn (which is really quite good) but certainly AIIP's member directory is the more the direct route.

I'm coming in very late on this, but would add AIIP (Association of Independent Information Professionals) as a great resource. Anyone can search the member directory by keyword (primary research, industry, etc) and find resources. I belong to this organization, and like any resource you need to check up on the person by asking around, which isn't too tough with social networks to add as a resource, these days! I have referred fellow IPs business by finding them on this database. As a member I belong to AIIP's listserv so I have an idea of the knowledge of various members who participate.

Any BI/CI Independent contractors in Michigan out there? Is so, I'd like to hear from you- seeking freelance/partnership possibilities

I have been in the same boat as Eric - the tyranny of the urgent sounds very familiar - but am glad to have found this group.
Comment by Eric Badertscher on February 23, 2009 at 3:32pm
I just realized the the "tyranny of the urgent" has kept me from checking on this Group in far too long. Thanks to all the people who responded to my initial question - and my apologies for not acknowledging sooner. My question has been answered, and then some.

Best regards,

Eric Badertscher

Mark Johnson, Alan Kelsky,et al:
Probably one of the better ways to find the companies in desperate need for your expertise and services is to subscribe to the Commerce Business Daily (CBD). In that publication (published by the Government every business day of the year) you will find RFP's (Request For Proposal) for goods and services wanted/needed by every Agency of the Government. Full direction and disclosure for obtaining a Bid Package and the Purchaser/Contract Manager contact method is in the description.

Another section of the publication will tell you who has won the bid. There are a lot of opportunities for sub-contacting in that section. If you don't want to subscribe to the CBD, go to the Public Library and if they subscribe to the CBD. If you are near a military post, drive over and arrange to visit that post's contracting division. They may have copies, but they are usually three days behind the publication date.

Any questions or comments, give me a call or comment on this site. I'll probably find out you know more about this than I do.
