Career-Op: A Secret Weapon

Career-Op: A Secret Weapon

by Douglas E. Welch, ComputorEdge Magazine
This week, I got a harried call, very early in the morning (for me). My long-time friend and fellow computer consultant, Sam, had a crisis. Rather, one of his clients had a crisis, but this, of course, made it his problem as well. Sam recently started working full-time again and was unable to visit this client immediately. A quick call to me, though, and I was on my way to the client site. We established this reciprocal working agreement in a very ad hoc fashion over the years. We regularly fill in for each other whenever business or family calls us away from our clients for any length of time. There has never been anything in writing, or even a much-discussed agreement of duties or responsibilities. Rather, it has always been an informal agreement to help each other.
