9 mos ago a placement agency placed me for freelance work with a co. The gig lasted a few weeks & ended. The co. now wants to hire me. What are the repercussions if we do not use the agency?

Then the company will owe the staffing agency most likely. I've called staffing agencies with whom I have great relationships and negotiated candidates out of it. Or I've negotiated a lower free. The staffing agency may not even notice when you get hired though. Most companies don't agree to 12 month.

I hate to say this, but if no one knows, maybe just keep your mouth shut and play dumb.

Just ask the company what their agreement is with the staffing agency. It may only be 6 months, so no harm, no foul. It will also show you're a conscientious employee! 👍

Do the right thing and speak up. The agency made the introduction and if they have a 12m intro policy they should be informed and paid.

Let’s say the agreement is 12 months

Can title be negotiated?

Hi all! I work in a strategy role at a bank in Toronto. I’m fully remote right, but might be asked to go back once in a week/couple weeks, but our leadership has assured us they will accommodate our needs in case we don’t feel comfortable.

With this context - I’m looking to work from London UK for a couple of months. Should I tell them/ask (tax implications?) or remotely continue to work and let them assume I’m in Toronto? If I do not disclose my physical location will they find out?

I’m interviewing at 2 different companies this week that I’m really excited about. One is a contract coordinator position that has potential to turn full time. I feel pretty confident as a coordinator and think they will want to hire me full time. I have never worked a contract position so I’m curious if you guys have any pros/cons? What pay should i look for per hour @ a startup for a coordinator role? The other interview is for a salary coordinator position @ a public company

Hello! I am stuck with a problem and need help. I've been working at a start up agency with good pay and benefits for the past 3 months. The problem is, I recently decided to move to another state for my sanity at the peril of losing this job. Upon hire, my CD informed me that the agency wishes to have mandatory in office visits about 2-3 days a week in the future. Now my q is - should i look for another job, then talk to the CD, or should i speak to them now. FYI I do wish to stay with them!

I got a verbal offer from a WPP agency today. The role's budgeted salary is 5k less than my desired salary.
The recruiter can get me closer but still not at my desired salary. Otherwise - it would have to go through a long approval process with no guarantee that the salary would even be OK'd.
I'm coming from a small agency, so I could be wrong - but I don't want to sell myself short by accepting the first salary they offer. Do I have any room to negotiate? Or is that risky?

My AD coworker (not currently my partner) just got hired at a new agency and wants to bring me along as his writer. I'd love to join. He told the recruiter at that agency about me and sent my book. I also have another former coworker (creative) who put in a good word for me.

Should I reach out to the recruiter, too? Or is that overkill after two recos? I don't want to be bothersome. But I do want to show interest..

This all happened on Friday, if that matters. Thanks!
