I have been offered a 3 month contract job at an exhibit design firm in boston. It is 40 hours/week. My fee has not yet been discussed. Does anyone know what the going rate is these days? I have bid on all projects in the past, but I don’t even know what the project is yet?
This sounds closer to reality. $75-$100/hr f/t for a couple of days, maybe a week if you’re lucky. For extended stays, drop it or they’ll just be bringing you in for short pieces, 2 hrs of brainstorm, then go home, render these 3 then go home, etc to save money.
