WFH Freelancers

Is there a standard industry markup percentage that agencies bill clients on top of freelancers? Or for that matter, anyone hiring a subcontractor?

As a freelance strategy director I’ve seen my rate typically tripled on client invoices.

@Brand Strategist 1 Yeah, I’ve heard of 100% markup, but even that sounds like too much to me

No, there isn't. Agencies have contracted hourly rates and annual budgets with clients and they charge them the rate for the title/position under which you perform and bill hours in their system. That's totally independent from what hourly rate you charge the agency as your client.

I was laid off fall of last year, allegedly due to covid. I just saw that they re-listed my position and now am devastated and doubting everything about my career. I got good reviews at this and my previous jobs but many are cowardly about giving honest feedback. I took a step down and started a new job recently so I’ll be ok in the long run but the job I was laid off from was my “dream job”. I don’t have strong family/friend support, exacerbated by covid isolation. Any wisdom/advice?

What’s best practice in asking for a referral? Obviously being overwhelmingly thankful goes without saying, but is it best to be coy and wait for them to make the move, ask about it bluntly, etc.?

However, instead of giving me the opportunity to lead they are bringing my previous boss and I have been requested to report to him. My previous boss is smart as hell but lazy and always just passes on things down. I am also pregnant with my 2nd and haven’t told . Contd..
