Recently got a contract job at Facebook NY. I’ve mostly only been a FTE for the entirety of my career, so a bit nervous as I want to eventually be offered FT but feeling a lot of pressure to perform for the next 5 months to prove my worth. At some point it will surely get exhausting. Any tips for how to deal with this? Also curious to know what a mid-level PM normally gets paid as a freelancer?
Crazy how I’m not even close to six figures with 5 years of experience, a Masters degree and a CPA. And my cousin who is in Tech Sales just hit $140k total comp with just 3 years of experience and a bachelors. 😔

What’s your biggest achievement this year?
I moved from Europe to the US. I was always really anxious about making that move. There’s a lot of administration involved. I’m really proud I faced that fear and managed to get here, get a visa, find an apartment and get this whole thing organized.
I’m also happy I didn’t choose a big name company that didn’t feel right but would feed my ego, but I managed to choose the company that felt right.
