What price should I charge for design services?
I'm a computer science undergraduate and have recently successfully applied for a web-design job but have a few questions.
Before a contract is drawn up I have a discussion scheduled to disuss salary and other details, but I'm not really sure how much to ask for?
- I'm 18
- I'm currently in full-time study so will be working part-time, therefore paid by hour - roughly 10-15 hours a week
- The majority of the work will be graphic design with PHP/ASP coding every now and again.
- My main reason for this job is to gain some real-world experience in the hope of actually getting a decent, related, job when I graduate.
They want me to officially start work after Easter but however they also want me to work on a small re-design over the Easter holidays (that's fine with me) in order to understand the company better, start to get familar with their processes and show them what I'm capable of. However, they want me to quote for this but again, not sure what to charge. I've done websites for friends/friends of friends in the past but charged fairly low rates(£50-£100 for some fairly advanced stuff, i.e. Paypal IPN etc).
The website I must re-design is a fairly simple, static, website with just a few pages.
Your thoughts would be massively appreciated.
