Find out who picks up the phone when you call us regarding a request for the Italian market: meet Sebastiano Piccinno for a little Q&A!
Who are you, and what is your position?
I’m Sebastiano Piccinno – the Consultant Manager for the Italian market at Right People Group.
“What I highly appreciate about my work is to share the same
professional values, efficiency, and transparency,
which are also the main values of our company“
What differentiates Right People Group from other IT consultant agencies?
Right People Group is neither the first or the only actor in the freelance market.
What distinguishes us, in addition to IT skills, is the fact that we are always up to date with new technological advances, and certainly our “modus operandi”. Our direct and single-person approach allows us to precisely define the needs of our customers, perform targeted research based on these needs and report to the consultant, without any loss of information, the exact request we received.
Efficiency, speed, and quality of service are the basic principles that distinguish us, accompanied by the desire to establish a solid relationship both with our customers and with our network of consultants.
Tell me about a recent project you worked on that illustrates your daily job
When the customer’s request is aimed at a specific competence, the process itself is very similar in every case. The work becomes interesting when it is my personal support that becomes a fundamental contribution in defining the necessary profile.
A specific case concerns the development of a particular form of machine learning that my client intended to integrate with a proprietary software. Here, the process required not only to define the necessary skills but also the definition of the entire project phase step by step, in synergy with the fantastic consultant who decided to collaborate with me on this project.
Can you share a challenge you faced and how you solved it?
My work is full of daily challenges. Many requests to handle with tight deadlines. My network and the quality of the relationships I hold every day is the solution to most of my daily challenges.
“You realize that you are dealing with the “right person”
when you feel a person’s deep interest in the
work environment that is presented to him”
In the hunt for the right consultant for a specific job, what are the most important qualities and traits you look for?
The profile of the consultants that I contact every time is always very similar. We are talking about professionals who have followed a path of exceptional professional growth, and distinguishing them in terms of quality of competence is very difficult since they are all extremely prepared. What causes the choose of a consultant rather than another, depends more than anything on a personal feeling. You realize that you are dealing with the “right person” when you feel a person’s deep interest in the work environment that is presented to him. Many times, the motivation that drives a consultant to apply for a position is the factor that ensures success in managing the project.
How do you evaluate a project?
Normally I base it on the entity of the project, preferring projects with certain temporal visibility. Then there are other factors such as the commitment to see if the customer is taking the suggested profiles seriously, while avoiding those who just want an overview of information.The definition of the role, the tasks, and the project are also an important factor to make the decision. The more detailed a project is, the more targeted and easily accessible the research is. Then there are cases for which none of these conditions seems to be respected and yet the project intrigues and stimulates me the idea of having been an active part in its realization.
When do you feel that you did a good job? Give an example if possible.
I am satisfied with my work when all parties are happy. When the client finds a collaborator who can provide a valid contribution and, at the same time, the consultant starts working on a project that is stimulating for him and that can contribute further professional growth.
What is your greatest career accomplishment?
My biggest business success is exactly what I have created and done to date. A solid network of collaborators is always available to evaluate a new project and always happy to be contacted and taken into consideration or even involved to receive their opinion.
What do you like about your job at RPG and what motivates you to come to work every day?
What I highly appreciate about my work is to share the same professional values, efficiency, and transparency, which are also the main values of our company. In addition to this, surely the pleasant feeling of having succeeded in satisfying the needs of a customer who approaches me in need of support for a project. As well as having presented a job opportunity to an IT freelancer. The consultants and the customers always have my utmost respect, both professionally and from a personal point of view.
“My network and the quality of the relationships I hold
every day is the solution to most of my daily challenges“
Why did you choose to work in the IT industry?
I have always been fascinated by technology, since the days of the Commodore 64. However, I entered this fantastic industry despite having previously followed a completely different professional path. It was a door that opened by chance and from which I never left and I have no intention of crossing again. It is a stimulating environment, constantly changing and evolving, and that “forces” you to always learn something new.
