Freelancers

Agency I’m at just laid off a ton of FTEs. Is being a freelancer becoming stable because we don’t count as headcount, and they need us during the ensuing chaos?

Not necessarily, especially as the market gets more flooded with people looking for freelance work.

From what I have seen - as more clients go away from AOR agencies are having an increasingly difficult time staffing which has made the freelance market hot. This could be a blip or a new norm.

I’ve just read a projection that says 80% of the US workforce will be part of the gig economy by 2030. So there will be a lot of freelancing.

Is it just me, or are MBA grads particular pricks when they get to consulting? I mean I have a TFA pre-MBA Consultant who has taken one case method accounting class lecturing me when I'm a CPA

I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB. I'm up for manager this year and appreciate that if you move over you are expected to reset to first year post-MBA but has anybody been able to negotiate maybe a 2nd year post-MBA or even a manager/PL/EM entry? What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!
