You wouldnt ask a chef for a free sample of their food before you sit down and actually pay for a meal. So dont ask a freelancer to do a test run of work for your actual project before hiring them.

People that used to complain about travel, how do you feel with the new normal of limiting travel eventually? How have your companies prefaced in what may change in the future? Will you still have 80% travel? My role requires about 40% and the rest of the time I was remote/WFH - which was enough to prevent me from being overwhelmed, but still no word about expectations for the future in traveling to clients.
