I was laid off in Jan and since then I’ve been building my own practice (which I started last year and was doing on the side). Since Covid happened, work has been a lot slower so I started applying for jobs. I got two job offers in these past couple weeks, but the problem is that neither is in the area I want to practice, though the experience from one of them would be probably useful in the future. Ultimately I want to have my own practice, but my dilemma is that as a 3rd (cont.)

What really happens when you contact HR.
I hate working with cost consultants. But in following this bowl I understand why clients hire them. We have to do a better job training producers and helping them understand how the job is done.
I feel upset that so many of our well-meaning clients can’t talk like real people do about subjects of basic empathy. I can’t believe that when a brand says something like “racism is bad” it’s considered an outlier. Hell, I even know racists who constantly tell me racism is bad.
