Any advice on quitting working through a staffing firm? I love the gig I’m on and they have been good to me, but I’ve landed a gig directly through another agency and will be taking it. Don’t want to burn bridges. Also haven’t signed a contract w/new agency yet.

With more demand than supply of Freelancers and Staff, have you upped your rates? I feel like now is the time.

But... if they keep extending me, I feel like there's no option for upping my rate. Thoughts?
