Short-term consulting project compensation

Hi Anon! A consulting gig would likely not come with benefits under these circumstances (sometimes benefits are an option if you're contracting through a staffing firm alternatively), so you need to account for that in your rate as well as any self-employment tax differences, legal fees for documentation development/review, etc. Consulting fees should be higher - guidance I've seen about just how much seems to vary. I've been billing hourly at 2-3 times what I once made as an employee taking into account the market/my skills/experience supports that and it's possible I was a bit underpaid before.Just did a quick search and found this article, which outlines some useful things to think about.
Thank you so much @Norine173, that is super helpful, especially the part about navigating and adjusting for taxes and benefits. Really appreciate it!
Glad it was helpful!
