Could someone tell me -- ballpark figure -- what would be a range for a filemaker contractor working in Chicago, IL as opposed to working in Orlando, FL with a per diem so I know that would make the rate less. I have a possible contract position (Filemaker 6 work) and I don't want to underprice myself. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've worked contracts in Washington State, Tennessee, Florida, and now finishing up a contract in Indiana.

My first guess is that your would be about $60/hr. I've seen more from time to time, but if you are going through a head hunter, they typically take a pretty good-sized cut. The headhunters are also paying this rate for .NET, SAP, and Oracle developers.

The firm I currently conctracted through uses a number of Indians doing what use to be 'expensive' work for around $35/hr (working here in the states, on-site development).

Hope this helps...

Another side point- when making couter offers, ask for more per diem as opposed to more 'billing' rate. Since most of these contracts are fixed perdiem- it stillmore money to you- but they don't take taxes out of the per diem portion...
