How hard is it to move from freelance to full time in an agency? Chatting about a freelance strategist position at R/GA but don’t really want to give up the benefits of full time

At the moment, a lot harder.

Ask if it’s for contract (project-based) or for a new client. If it’s contract for a specific project, then it’s highly unlikely that it will turn into anything permanent. If it’s to get a body in while they look for a full time person, then it is much more likely. When I work with a great freelancer , I fight hard to get them hired. If you out perform other team members, anything is fair game.

The manager, familiar with the proposed solution, however seems to be annoyed with me that I didn’t create content. Not sure what to make of this?

I need some inputs on if I should pursue a MBA. Goal that I would use MBA for is getting into VC, only a undergrad internship in that space, or doing a search fund and like micro PE. I would consider corporate VC too. Alternative is to focus on meetups to meet founders, getting a better job and hit the accredited investor status so I can invest with angels. Undergrad was a top business school, so I feel strong with finance and other functions.
