I'm looking at a 9-month contract job doing PC configs and installs. It's not my normal gig, but being out of work for a bit has broadened my job search scope. The contracting company will make the lion's share but what's the normal/fair rate for them to pay me? $15/hr? $20/hr? More? Less?

Who and where?

Who is the contract company?

Where will you be working?

What kind of company are you going to be supporting?

I have made as little as $20 hr w/o benefits and as high as $45 an hour working for consulting firm.

I have also gotten as much as $225 an hour on my own consulting gig. Usually around $75 hr.

They will probably bill you out at anywhere from $33hr up.

IM me if you want with some specifics and I will see how close I can get.

Sounds like a $17-20hr gig w/o benefits.

I have done a few 2 0r 3 day deals like that.

You can get some good networking in doing this kind of gig, the getting to know people kind. You might pick up a real position through some contacts you make working it.

good luck
