So this feels a bit - I guess embarrassing to admit. But is anyone else a contractor in their current am/cs position? I was working as a freelance marketer (not in account management) prior to this job. And was hired from a freelance website for a 40/week position. I do not think they currently have ANY employees so I’m not sure if that’s a road they want to go down. But I’m definitely interested. Curious how common it is and how difficult it would be for my job to start employing people.

I’m looking at other jobs that would make me an employee. I’m mostly interested in health insurance. I pay A LOT. It would also be great to have sick days/vacation days, possible 401K match. So perhaps the middle ground is that I just discuss more benefits with him.


Nothing embarrassing about that, do what you have to do - the fact you found ANY work in this job market is no small feat! I think you're on the right track here. Maybe give it a little time just to show your value and once you've established yourself there you'll have a little more leverage to discuss benefits.

Just went through ER and feeling very deflated. Only 4 eggs retrieved and they think I went through early ovulation. I’m 33F and all other results have been normal/had plenty of follicles (10 of size, 10 smaller). This is worst than what I was expecting. It’s only my first round but already thinking how I’m going to have to do this again. I’m thinking of traveling to some of the better known clinics - anyone know the name of the one in Colorado that is very popular for its lab? Is it CCRM?
