I'm not very familiar with contract positions. I know most agencies can end a contract early but can the freelancer end it early if they choose to?

How long should I wait after initial screen call with an agency recruiter? I’ve had two calls with two different agencies last week. They both went well imo.

I am digital strategist with 7+ years of experience and co-own a bar/restaurant. I left agency life 2 years ago to launch another location that didn’t open. When interviewing people focus on the bar?

When is an appropriate time to follow up after your third and final interview? I wasn’t given a timeframe of when they’d get back to me. Don’t want to seem too eager but want to make sure I follow up

My entire career has been in marketing strategy & analytics, but I want to make the switch to full time marketing strategy (I’m sick of the data work). How do I sell this?

I’ve noticed when applying for jobs online they ask about your gender, race, disability and veteran status. Is being one or more make you a more desirable candidate for a quota?

Is it bad not to ask any questions during an interview? Also, if meeting with two ceos for an entry level position, what might they be looking for?
