200/hr is absurdly high. That’s 400k/ yr.

Freelancing rates are higher than full time rates. You have to understand that freelancers jump from project to project.. some projects get cancelled.. some moved.. where’s your next project? It’s a hard road, and you don’t know when the next turn on the road is coming. Freelancers also pay for their own health insurance, liability insurance, laptops/software, etc.. Freelancers deserve to be paid properly.

I always do 100/hr but think I probably could do a tad more

Full time? Also is that base salary? Do you get any bonuses?

Oh boy… I started as junior Ux/UI designer six months ago. I get paid 20/hr. 40k/ year I have worked in 4 projects already from research to iterate, test and work with developers ( Two projects at the same time) 3 of them are in development in different phases. I was told to get a trainee position for 3 months after that get paid 46k/ yr, then after those 3 months my boss told me I need more training and told me to do 2 more months of training. After those extra 2 months he still not giving me a full time position and gave an extra 3 more months of training but this time will pay me 43k/ year. Every-time he just picks something for me to improve

You are right. I am also tutoring UX/UI students, I figured when you teach you are learning as well. So that helps not only with earning some extra money but practicing my skills. How bad do I want this raise? We all need and want more specially in this expensive city that most of my paycheck goes to rent, food and taxes.

Has anyone received/know of a HireVue request from Accenture (Federal) with the title "Introduce Yourself" under the Job Title portion?

I'm also just wondering if this is a "serious" screening interview or something HR uses to keep on file (just so I can prepare accordingly). Thanks!

need advice. I have been working in an interim role as a portfolio manager. I was promised that the role would be mine.

Its a political minefield. How should I back out elegantly that I need to be compensated fairly and competitively from this mess without burning any bridges
