I will like to know an approximate consulting hourly rate for a 5 year Oracle DBA on a 3 month Temp to Perm position. The consulting company provides health and other benefits and the position is in the Washington, DC area.
Sorry for posting in wrong area.. Do you want me to move it to the correct area? They were offering $40/hr but since I did not know much about contracting I am hesitant of leaving my current perm position for it. I guess I will go for $60 to be safe and quote DBA support as my source of information. Many thanks.
I kinda assumed that you were the one looking to hire someone! Not the other way around.
Since you're looking to get hired, it's purely *your* call. You ought to come up with an appropriate number for yourself. If you're a kicka$$ DBA, anything short of $100 / hr (for a short term gig) would be a crime. On the other hand, if you're just learning the ropes - $35 would be more appropriate. It depends on what you can sell yourself for..
PS : I just read someplace that DKB charges $500 / hour! There you go..
