I'm leaving my current job for a new one and they're probably going to want me to consult for a few hours at a time in the future. What hourly rate should I give when asked?
The catch is I'm moving from Alabama making $78k to FB Seattle making ~230k TC. A lot of local contractors are available for $50-55/hr but I'd have to ask for double that just to match my new pay not including employer overhead / benefits.
Yes I already considered asking for about tree fiddy, thanks for the suggestion. Bit under 3 yrs work exp, US bachelor's only, thanks for asking.
Don’t forget you pay 15% self employment tax.
Remaining 15-35% is because you don’t get paid a PTO hour or insurance or any other benefit for every hour you work for them now.
You won’t be able to maintain “good relationship” for too long without asking for this much.
And because there’s a reason for it... note that use of the word “minimum”.
