Does anyone have experience hiring an project manager external to your organization to implement enterprise wide customer facing solutions (ebilling, etc.). What company or firm did you use to find

I need to recruit a project manager, potentially a project coordinator to manage an internal project. My role has changed significantly and would make managing the project myself risky. Do you have any recommendations for consulting or contracting agencies where I can look to hire a PM or PC?

Thanks in advance!!

I see a lot of contractors being hired through NextGen at my company. I have not been personally responsible for hiring any of them but I work closely with some and in my experience most are highly qualified. Good Luck.

Have you already sought a candidate within your local PMI chapter? Hiring someone within the chapter may give you the advantage of already knowing something about the candidate’s competence and character. Also, you can avoid the outrageous billing fees consulting companies charge. As a long-term consultant I know some consultant companies will throw any warm body they can get into a position. This is particularly dangerous when hiring Project Managers, since their incompetence is usually apparent only after your project has begun to fail.
If that doesn’t work, then I suggest using Ace Info Solutions (https://www.aceinfosolutions.com) or Plan B Technologies (www.planbtech.net); both are local DC consulting companies for which I have worked.

Hi Eric,
I had not considered the PMI chapters but I am going to do some research there. I appreciate the feedback.

Check out http://www.ctec-corp.com/ . They are a staffing company that we have used in the past. Their rates are reasonable. If they do not have someone on hand to do a job, they will find them. They are local to you as well.
