Been on a long year+ freelance contract at an agency. Took a much lower hourly rate with the promise of converting to FT staff after 3 months. Due to Covid that timing got pushed (understandably) but I recently learned the FT role is not available until 2022 earliest. Got a new freelance offer after 1 day of reaching out at my regular day rate. What to do?

They did exactly this and extended my booking to end of year at least. New gig is 1 month with potential for extension. My hesitation is that I built the team and am training some junior talent so would rather see it through than bail for a new place that may be short term…

Grass is not always greener. Be sure to stay with the agency that will give you the best experience. Bonus points if you like the people. If it is Agency A let them know you got another offer but would like to stay. If it is Agency B and they are paying you more then run with it!
