You may see this as a bit of fun or a serious way of working out how much to charge per hour but either way I’d suggest the ‘Hourly Rate Calculator’ which you can use Free at: http://freelanceswitch.com/rates/

I charge a flat rate of like $75 for my templates… including design and coding. I think I need a real job. How do you guys get jobs? I’ve been looking for a job for a long time now and I can’t find anything. All the decent / permanent jobs require a degree in graphic design. I don’t feel like wasting XX,XXX to learn something I already know. At the universities around here, graphic design programs have classes that teach you how to use FrontPage – if that’s any indication of what I’m going to be learning, I don’t want to take any part in it.

I would apply anyways… I think most companies will agree that impressive skills and experience are more valuable than a piece of paper :P

I work for a company, but I do occasional sidejobs… I usually set a base price of $2k (which is like a very basic website with standard functionality) and then $40/hour for everything on top of that (design, more functionality, etc etc)
