Yes. It helps if you have another freelance opportunity for leverage. Or you can just pick a time and ask for more. But be prepared for them to say no, or worse yet, end your gig. The freelance pool is deep and they can easily replace you.

I have when the workload ended up being more intense than promised. I’ve also done it when an initial contract wraps and I have other jobs available at higher rates. Freelance rates go up and down throughout the year depending on how busy things are so I think recruiters are used to it.

It depends. Some places are offended by it.

Any good recruiters do you recommend for online advertising opportunities?

My co-worker is so resentful and competitive because I was promoted over her last year which caused a demotion on her end. People in the company still go to her for things that should be for me but she rarely corrects them. Shes still involved in the company too in a way that allows her to know secrets that I should know about but never do. I technically am above her within the company but this is how things are. I just do my job and try to not let it bother me but it does. Any suggestions?
