Been on a long year+ freelance contract at an agency. Took a much lower hourly rate with the promise of converting to FT staff after 3 months.

Got a new freelance offer after 1 day of reaching out at my regular day rate. What to do?

Venting: I just went through rounds and rounds of interviews with a company. It was going really well, like I nailed each one of them. They asked me to do an assignment to which I said yes (I know but I wanted the job!) and I spent days working on it. Then crickets. Few days later “sorry but we’re changing our focus to a new role”. I feel angry, deflated.. sad. It seems on here that it’s easy for everyone to get the job. I’m always the number two candidates or *poof* the role disappears.
