FRAMINGHAM (07/24/2000) - Know the answer to these three questions before making a move from IS to a vendor, advises Shaun Kelly, vice president of IT recruitment firm EDP Staffing Services in Newington, Conn.

- Why would you make the transition? You need to understand how, if at all, it will help your career.

- Do you have a plan for getting out of the career plan in case it flounders?

You need to be able to explain why you attempted the transition.

- Are you staged financially to make the move? If you're a senior IS manager now,You can't expect to have the same earning power if you take an entry-level position with a vendor.
