However, I also have to note that I am a FTE now and plan to be for a
long time. The contract gigs I've nabbed in the past have either been
short stints between FT gigs, or have been specialized consulting gigs
in a moonlighting manner, mainly in offering tools training, doing
one-off conversions or templates for clients, or problem-solving in
another capacity. In all these cases, my rates were based on the type
of work performed and not on what I'd consider a fair salary. For
giggles I roughly computed my rates out to a yearly salary, and the
unrealistic numbers work out to anywhere from $6k/year to $400k/year.
The latter looks quite appealing until you consider it was $400 for 2
hours of assistance. ;-)
