I made this a new thread to help those of us out there who want to seek a consulting career. My story is I am soon to graduate with my MLA and realize the job market can't support full time work as much, so I am looking to consult as a way to make money and experience while not burdening employers with full time salary.
I've had a great response so far when I said I was willing to do this, but heres the big question....HOW do I start? Soem have said they would like to know what services I provide and a rate range. Whats an appropriate rate for a MLA/BFA willing to do graphic presentations/visual representations/ landscape design/land planning work?
What do I need to do to protect myself?
