Hi all, how much of a raise would you ask for when being promoted from AE to senior AE?Would 20% be fair or too much?With that amount I’d be $10-12k away from an average Supervisor salary. Thoughts?

What’s it like moving from the US market (I’m currently a Jr in SF)? I’d like to move back to Toronto within the next 5-10 years to be close to family and friends. Should I expect a drastic pay cut?

Just completed a freelance gig and it kinda sucks to have to wait for the next one. Any agencies have a need for a freelance writer or perhaps full time?

How long does it take to get a written offer after the verbal offer? I’ve usually had it come through same/next day, but wondering if one should expect to wait a week or so, or follow up right after
