Nada. Seems like it was hot before thanksgiving but all of the gigs were from right before thanksgiving up until Christmas.

Yes. Same here. So rude. It’s like, what? Now that you filled the role I don’t deserve a response. Scumbags.

Triple booked. The timing on two side projects shifted just as an oscars / sb six week sprint job hit.

Yup.

I always take time off between Thanksgiving and New Years, but this year I was begged to work on a new business pitch. I'm working thru next Friday.

Congrats. That’s great!

Hi All,

Does anyone have any idea on below question ?

I heard like deloitte is taking employees with their skillset.
Once they are joined into the company, they are not providing projects into their skillset and swapping into different skillset.
I heard from many existing employees.
In that case, it's deviating to career.

Does anyone that would be considered an addition to diversity at a firm (gender, race, sexual orientation) dislike the diversity initiative standards of forcing a desired outcome regardless of applications and candidate quality? It seems unfair to qualified candidates to feel like maybe they got a job because of that initiative and not because of their quality as a candidate.

I’m not convinced that contracting on 1099 is better than W2, since you pay 15% extra self employment tax.

If you have one 1099 gig you can claim all your expenses for the year against that and then go W2 for the rest. Am I missing something?
