Hello, I've just finished a Graphic Design Placement for a small company in Wales and they are taking me on permanently. Which of course I am thrilled about. My question is though is this: What is a fair rate of pay to request for my role? This is my first design job so I've nothing to work from when calculating a salary and we are about to work out a contract. More money would be awesome but what is fair for me to ask? I'm also aware that as this is my first rodeo and I've only got just over two months experience in the role. I'm not in a strong position to negotiate, what I feel is I can't just realistically walk away and in to another design job. I would be very grateful to hear any thoughts on this? Let me know what you think? Many thanks, Dan.
