I'm so happy for you! Landing a job in-house is a great accomplishment, and I'm sure you'll excel in your new position. Congratulations!

I'm sure you'll find that in-house work comes with its own set of challenges, but it's also a great opportunity to build long-term stability and security in your career. Best of luck and keep us posted on your progress!

Congrats, it's always exhilarating when we find our first job! It is a great accomplishment. It's definitely a tough market out there for freelancers, so congratulations on beating the odds.

NIce! What kind of work are you gonna be doing?

That's awesome, congrats!! think you'll miss anything about freelancing?

That's funny, I'm literally trying to go the exact opposite direction haha

Best of luck with the new job, going from freelancer to inhouse can be a rough transition but you seem excited so I'm sure you'll handle it no problem :)

That's awesome! What made you decide to go from freelance to in-house? Congratulations!

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

Can a newspaper use my photo without my consent?

I'm not a reporter, I'm just a citizen who took a picture during an event and uploaded it to my social media account. Turns out a digital media wrote me to have permission to use my picture, and when I said yes, they said they were looking for some other picture because I had already given permission to the competitors, which I didn't.
They just posted it without asking me, letting me know, or even mentioning my credits. Is this legal?
