consultant/contractor rates - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including 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.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
