Freelance hourly rate stayed roughly the same as my old full time rate, so the net result is that my annual income is much lower. Freelance rates are meant to allow for health insurance, extra 15% self-employment tax, sick leave, PTO, holidays, not having a reliable source of income etc. Unfortunately agencies are taking advantage of the market and using the “unprecedented times” as an excuse to pay less.

I’m gonna take a $35,000 pay cut with my next job (if they offer me full time). However, I’m moving cities and that 35k I’d be losing is technically $20k more than I was making the other place based on cost of living differences.

I signed a Deloitte offer last fall to start as a full time Analyst this upcoming August. It’s an APA role which involves working in/with tech clients. This job requires me to move to a new city and I’m about to start the process of moving. I’m absolutely petrified about having my offer rescinded due to the economic situation here in the US. Should I be worried, or am I safe? Does Deloitte rescind offers often?
