We are startup IT sole prioprioter company. We have one project for which we are preparing proposal. If we get project, we want to hire consultant. But in proposal we have to show consultant resumes. How we can show their resumes without hiring them in proposal? Is their any form we can fill and talk to consultant to show their resume. Do i need to get their permission to show their resumes?

Please let me know,

Yes. What if you tell the consultants that you will hire them if the client accepts the job and get their permission to show the resume?

Asking for resumes in a proposal sounds a bit strange in today's times when anyone that can spell "Java" and search Google for code examples and explanations is an expert...

What is there to prevent you from finding wonderful resumes that just fit perfect for the proposal and then putting the names of your "consultants" on these resumes? How would the potential client know that you have no experience with the individuals described in the resumes and their project may be your companies first test?

Hi Angela,

You could do preliminary interview with the consultants and then take their permission if you could share them with your client. This process is the regular process followed by most of the companies and I am sure any serious job seeker would not mind it.

I have seen lot of Indian companies doing this. They call it the client interview once client approves the consultant he gets hired.

All the best !!
