Consulting or Contracting? Which one do you like better? I keep getting called for contract/freelance roles. However, the rates are lower. I know freelance through an agency means they take a cut.

If I get to the Meet & Greet stage, does that mean I will be offered the job, and this is more for me to meet the team? Or is the team still deciding if I am a suitable match versus other candidates?

Thanks in advance!
