It's going to depend a whole lot on what part of the country you work in.


Hello all,

I am looking at hiring a part-time contractor to help me with such tasks as
compiling online help systems, compiling manuals in HyperHelp, updating
manuals, updating release notes, and various other small, nitpicky things. I
have interviewed one person already that seems ideal for the job, and we
have reached the level of negotiating her pay.

What hourly rate do you think is reasonable for someone doing the
aforementioned tasks that has no technical writing experience?

Thanks for your help,
Alyssa Fox
