I have an offer for some short-term contract work with a private firm, provided that we can agree on an acceptable hourly rate. This has the potential to lead to full-time work, so I don't want to shoot myself in the foot, but I also don't want to undercut my worth. I'm an AICP planner with a master's degree and 7 years of experience in planning and five years of experience in government relations before graduate school. Any suggestions on what would be a reasonable and fair hourly rate? Thanks in advance.
