I was recently hired as a front end developer under a 1099 sub-contracting agreement to work 20 hours /week at $10 / hour. Recently, my boss has been discussing brining me on full-time, salary based.
When I took this job, I realized I was being slightly underpaid, but I agreed due to my experience and because of the opportunities described by the company of a future of advancement within. Well, now I am seeing that advancement come to light, and I'm wondering...
If they offer me salary, what type of pay should I try to get?
I have no real education. A lacking portfolio. 6-7 years experience, though. I have proven my worth quickly to them, though.
I've never had a full-time or part-time job in web development, or even professionally, before this. I'm 18 years old.
What type of salary should I be shooting for?
I'm only currently providing advanced XHTML/CSS to them.
This is for a web-based company and developers are one of, if not the most important part of the company.
