Hi All

I've seen people called "consultant" in positions ranging from a junior sysadmin whose job consisted of installing workstations from image files and plugging them into the company LAN to senior software architects responsible for mission critical systems which would cost the client potentially billions of Euros if they were to fail.

Payscales are just as diverse, education requirements too.

Basically anyone brought in from an external source (outplacement agency, temp workers) is called a consultant in many companies, and many companies call everyone who does anything on-site with a client (or even over the phone) a consultant.
