Okay designers - I've heard so much conflicting advice on the scale of "keep resumes clean - black text on white paper with maybe some divider lines max" to "designer resumes should be designed to show your skills, to stay consistent with design of portfolio & to stand out in comparison to all the other resumes." What's the verdict?

Hello! I'm wondering if you all could give input on my salary. I'm a civil engineer in Chicago with 1.5 yr experience making $66,150. Bonuses are about $2k a year (not guaranteed).
The only reason I'm asking is because Glassdoor says the average starting salary is $77k and with my experience I should be making $85k. I'm not sure how accurate these numbers are though. Any input appreciated!
Best way to find new freelance clients, anyone have a good recruiter resource? Much appreciated.

I currently lead a team of UX consultants working at an enterprise client. Recently, the consulting company got another enterprise client asking for a single UX resource and I am seriously considering it to diversify my experience.

What are the questions you ask the client before you switch to another billable project to mitigate such risks?
