I've done it for 10 years, basically operate as a full time employee but has allowed me to learn a variety of marketing disciplines and work on a bunch of different types of accounts.

Following because I’m curious how/if you can do this successfully. I’m assuming you’d be embedded for a longer term in order to get the value an account person brings.

Makes sense. What markets? How long is your typical tenure?

Chicago. It varies, sometimes a few months but I've done up to 3 years at same place. And was asked back a few places, been really fortunate with it.

Just want to share a happy story - have spent the past 3 months slogging and fighting with red tape to launch our Asian affinity network/ERG. We had our hybrid launch event yesterday. 80+ people attended and we got direct congratulations from the participants, and from the regional managing partner and the Global Chair (!). It was a slog and much further to go but happy to take the small victory for now

Trying to figure out my freelance project rate for work with an agency.

Am wondering how much agencies typically mark up freelancer costs when billing clients? Thanks in advance!
