Aren’t they a contracting agency? Like many contractors, good pay but bad benefits and little job security. My answer would have been different a year ago, but in the Covid era I wouldn’t take any contracting jobs because of the job security and absurd cost of healthcare

Appreciate the concern but based on tenures for people there in similar roles on LinkedIn you are incorrect.

If you are on visa, keep in mind that they will ask you to pay your most visa related expenses out of pocket. Clarify that and negotiate salary accordingly.

Fortunately I am a born and raised citizen so I don't need so worry about a visa 🙂

Did you end up taking the role? If so welcome to the Ohana.

I did not, I made it passed all of the interviews and then I think I asked for too much money

I’m trying to make the jump from agency > platform (not FB…more like Spotify or Twitter etc.). I work with reps at these places as part of my job, but technically their loyalty is to my clients (the ones spending $ on their platform), not to me, working at the client’s creative agency. So it feels weird asking them for a recommendation or referral, but that would obviously be easier than applying on the jobs site... How do I utilize my “network” without making things awkward?
