Depends on what you’re asking for. I’ve seen 1-2 year planners freelancing for 50 an hour if you just need another pair of hands. I typically look for at least 5-7 years for a solid freelance senior planner.

Made a career change about a year ago and moved into marketing. Current role has me MISERABLE because of the leadership. It's only been a year, but I want to move out of this company. How important are certs in social media management and would they help me land a new role easier since I've only been in the field a year? Which certs are best to get? I've seen different perspectives online but I want to know real life experience perspectives.

Could someone help me with a Referral at Intuit ? Found an interesting Product opportunity that suits my profile.

Thanks in advance.
