Hi, I'm looking for some consultants to assist in training fresh graduates and junior developers in ASM. I need to build a team to around 14 or 15 guys. Senior guys can be expensive to hire so a good mix is best approach. Any ideas where to find consultants?

Let me help you with some basic questions:

Where offshore?
Length of employment?
What kind of consultant are you looking for? (expertise?)
Compensation?
What kind of arrangements are offered/included ? (Such as Flying in / Flying Out / Hotels / Dining ?)

Role is for competence manager, training can be provided from the comfort of your own home using modern technologies such as megameeting, skype, etc.

Trainer should be experienced in Mainframe and ASM.

Projects the engineers will be doing are mainly maintenance and consultant will be responsible for ensuring competency of engineers.

Salary is negotiable.

The type of mainframe and general system is probably relevant information to share as well, e.g. IBM System z, z/OS.

Good luck with your search.

Mainframe Consultant
Should be a z/OS person
Actually we need someone who will make overview and compare tools and technologies
ASM Knowledge is a plus

Our company has 2000 employees but Mainframe is new direction for us.
Offices based in USA, Ukraine and The Philippines.

z/OS would most likely involve BAL/HLASM, in which is entirely unrelated to x86 assembly language for all intents and purposes.

Please clarify so that we can ensure your subject line is correct.

I've modified the subject line to indicate z/OS rather than x86 assembly language.
