How long are consulting projects?
Each project is unique, but it's very common for consulting projects to start with 3-6 month contracts, sometimes up to 12 months. Projects can be full time, or 3-4 days per week.
On average, about 85% of contracts are extended, depending on project fulfilment, and if both the freelancer and client would like to continue working together. Ariad will help you in all transitional phases, including starting, extending, and ending each project--then getting you started on the next one.
The common conception can be that consultants only work on short projects, but long term projects can be around 2 years. No two projects are the same, and there is often a lot of flexibility.
