Ask exactly which ceritifications they have and make sure they are certified in the “Top Three” – Microsoft, Novell and Cisco(they take years of study and practice to obtain) Most computer consulting companies find high school “geeks” willing to work for $20 per hour or less, get them their A+ certification(a one-day, basic PC knowledge test) and charge more than $75 per hour for them! The truth is most other computer consulting companies are only qualified to replace memory or adapter cards in a PC.
2. Ask for references
3. Ask for a guarantee
4. Check BBBcom The Better Business Bureau for the company’s rating
5. Ask how long they have been working in the IT industry and a description of some of the larger, more complex projects they have worked on.
