When is it time to go client side from agency? I’m not looking for a new role but a contact has a contract to full time placement that is for a stable company and sounds like a significant pay raise. My current agency has good benefits, I liked the work pre-covid. Now raises and promotions are paused, and they’re very hesitant to hire with no end in sight. I’m not sure it’s worth it to hang around.

Married 1.5 years long distance. I took a job to be with him that pays twice what he earns now. I’ve been sharing every detail of my job hunt, interviews to salary negotiations. He has been very supportive but sometimes I feel guilty I’m rubbing it into his face and I have goals about going up the ladder fast, get/ experience the fanciest things and reaching a certain role/salary in life. I fear when I move in things may change, I’ll feel held back, may need to take low pay to feel we’re equal

This is my first salary/work benefit negotiation and I’m so nervous I might just unhire myself before we actually get to talk 😭😭
