What is the difference between a Freelance and a Consultant?
I want to know what is the real difference between providing consulting services and just being a freelance? What is the difference if any in terms of skills, salary, responsabilities? Does any one knows where to look for consultant jobs?

Freelancer is the general term for someone who is self-employed (and gets 1099s instead of W2s). A consultant is a specific type of freelancer.

a freelance consultant is just someone who does the job independantly not as an employee of a company. What kind of consulting do you want to do ? There are people who consult on manufacturing processes, finances, IT, efficiency, advertising and almost every other business discipline that exists.

I thought a consultant was under contract, and a freelance dude sold his stuff.

Not much. Both take the watch from your wrist, tell you what time it is, and call it a 'concept.'
