FAQs

Overview

Is my engagement really risk-free?

Yes. All of our engagements begin with an obligation-free trial period to ensure that the connection we have helped forge is the right one. You have the opportunity to test the match, the consultant’s ability and the culture fit before committing to anything. If at the end of the trial period you are happy, we bill you for the time and continue the engagement for as long as you like. If not, we cover the cost of the consultant and you've got the opportunity to engage in another trial period or discontinue the relationship entirely.

What are my upfront fee's?

This is one of the best parts – there aren't any!

What does Milestone offer that other companies don't?

Over the past decade it's become apparent that there is a serious gap between what's currently offered in the marketplace and what we believe should be offered. We hear this from both consultants and companies all too often.

Milestone IT was developed to ensure that the process of connecting a consultant with an engagement opportunity is simple and that each and every time a match is made it delivers the best possible outcome for both parties.

How do you guarantee quality?

All of our consultants undergo a thorough screening process before they become members of the Milestone IT community. This process incorporates a fully scoped analysis including:

  • Technical interview and assessment by a vertical industry specialist
  • Psychometric assessment
  • Extensive background checks and industry-reputation exploration
  • Extensive metadata analysis, English-score assessment and communication assessment
  • Cultural-fit assessment and value-driven

We've spent over a decade ensuring that this is the case and each consultant that joins the Milestone IT network undergoes a thorough screening process that includes:

References

What is a "Verified Consultants"?

As a part of the consultant validation process we use a system of verification by references. During the registration process consultants are asked to provide trusted referees. These referees are then contacted by Milestone IT and asked to review the consultant’s abilities. Milestone IT consultants then assess and evaluate the references. Every good reference wins a ‘star’ for the consultant’s profile. The number of stars on a profile determines each consultant’s ranking status on the Milestone IT system.
