Welcome to CSR Nation
Just wanted to check in with everyone and see if things have started to pick up? This has been a good year for me so far, but I'm in the Silicon Valley and maybe that area gets more lawsuits, especially the patent stuff.
How about the rest of you? Is work getting any better?
Kelli, How far out do you book your jobs? I have two main firms that I work with, but both of them want to book me a month ahead of time. If I don't schedule with them then, they cover it with someone else. There's no "call me two days ahead of time." Half the time (no much exaggeration there) the jobs cancel. It's really making me crazy to be constantly turning down jobs for jobs that are probably going to cancel. Then invariably, the days I have a job, three of four people will call offering a job, not to mention jobs flying all over the place from CSR Nation.
As crazy as the scheduling makes me, I will say that I have been pretty steady this year -- a welcome relief!
I'm out in Ventura County. Last year was an amazing year for me financially. I made the most I'd ever made in my 25 year career, but this year has started off very slow and sluggish. I work with about 5 different agencies, but most are small and they don't seem to have much work either. Any suggestions?
