Successful Freelancers. How to get gigs, negotiate, bill, etc.

@CD1 love it! 😊

Enough with the self-anointed “Industry Leaders”. Let’s hear from bad ass Freelancers who are at the top of their game. Those who get on with it and do the work. They understand the daily challenges, which is much more useful to those of us who find ourselves freelancing right now.

@CD2 yea I get it. Fresh college grads flock to them. But.. as you get older, you should move away and charge what you deserve so you make enough money to survive. Again, this is from a freelancers perspective. Im sure it’s a little different if you’re going after a FT employee position.

Interviewing skills. Everyone I’ve had interviews with has a totally different approach. Every time I think I’m prepared I get tripped up and can’t always recover.

Reaching out to recruiters. What works, what doesn't. Where to contact them so they'll see your stuff. At this point I'd just like help getting my foot in the door... Also, what to say to random Creative Directors who you want "feedback on my book" from but really just want a job at their agency.

What is a typical time for an offer to be extended?

Talks went very well, and conversation ended with how they just needed to talk to the people responsible for next steps(finance). Last meeting was one week ago. Big firm. Not a posted position so I’m the only candidate. Am I am being impatient?
