consultant/contractor rates - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

There seem to be many more consulting/contract oppportunities these days. I am looking for the rate that a consultant would charge per hour and the rate a contractor would charge as well.
The only site I cam across with typical rates was a navy site with IT work.

Is there somewhere similar for hardware engineering types (in the US)?

Jake,
A recent article on IEEE rates independant consulting between $100 and $125 on average in the industry. That's if you are on your own.
Often times if you are using a staffing agent he may charge $150 plus and he will take his cut for brokering the job.

If you know how much you would be making on that as full time employee with benefits a good rule of thumb is to devide your yearly salary by 1000 to get your hourly rate.
