    Default Agent wants to take 20%, I think he's taking the p...

    I've been approached by an agent, won't name names, but he's got a Manchester accent.

    He's offered me a role at an accounting firm as their SEO specialist. He told me the rate was £75-100, I think that's hourly but I've asked him to confirm.

    I'd like it, but at 20%, I suspect NoLUcK.

    Any thoughts?

    If you like the rate, what's the problem?

    Are accountancy fees thrown in for that?

    No idea, and I don't know who to ask.

    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Phoned the agent this morning about the hourly/daily rate thing. He wanted to know if I had a Bee in my bonnet, which got him all worked up.
