Fellow writers, I had a quick question regarding what you charge / how you charge for freelance social media posts. The client says they would need 12-15 posts per month, and wondered what my rate would be. It’s a fairly vague request.
Do people within Deloitte HC feel like HC gets the best WLB out of all the other groups? Obviously depends on project…but just in general. Seems like it’s less stressful. Which is what I want.

Left UK 5 years ago as Mgr because got fed up of low comp (and really, it’s the comp:houseprice ratio). Felt like unless you were in IB or Magic Circle law then getting on the property ladder was v difficult. But now wife wants to move back home - and trying to find the right moment when pay cut will be the smallest... Are there pathways to earn £180-200k as a Director at the Big4, or is Partner the only ticket to doing so?

Me and another teacher had a meeting with a parent and student. After the meeting, the admin asked us both to stay. He shut the door and yelled at me for not apologizing to the student (the other teacher did before the meeting and I 100% wanted to, but I felt like the opportunity wasn't there - and yes, I know I should have). Tomorrow I plan on apologizing to the student. But do I say something to the admin for yelling at me in front of a coworker? Or let it go.

Are Indian companies allowing their employees to work remotely from other countries if they have special visa from that country like digital nomad visa?
Guys, I am APHR certified and practiced Organization Development for several years and I still had problems getting a new job after migrating to the USA. I have been researching and learning and what I found out was to switch career minimum; needed is education (first not not certification to show you have practiced new skills). This will lead to new skill sets which will lead into more experience.

Are they 12-15 posts due whenever you feel like coming up with them? Is there a set timeline? Are the posts all up to you to decide? Is there a brief? One brief for each month? A bunch of different briefs that break each month into 4 chunks of 3-4 posts? Are they static posts? Video? Text only? My point being, I wouldn't accept the job without a lot more details. Always get clarity up front to help you set the rate. Otherwise you'll fall into the trap of setting a low rate for something that initially sounded easy because they were intentionally misleading.
“So let's say Instagram and TikTok captions, maximum 15 posts a month. You'd be writing the captions looking at the artworks/ images/ videos we make, and we'd brief you completely on who the client is, their USP, keywords, tone of voice, etc. And yes, a monthly retainer would be best.”
- that’s a monthly retainer, I’m not sure what a decent rate should be for this type of work.
Charge a daily rate if things are vague and uncertain. It will cover you a lot more
I’ve found hourly to be the most flexible, especially for unknown/general projects and if you already have a full-time gig.
I typically charge $100/hr.
I don’t fux with hourly rate jobs because I write fast. The speed at which I create shouldn’t effect my comp.
