How much to ask for?

Hey guys, I recently came across an internship for a web development firm. Gives me college credit, so that’s great, however I’ve picked up the vibe that their main concern is wanting labor for cheaper(who doesn’t) than a graduate. So it’s unpaid, however I have a meeting scheduled to discuss pay. I don’t know if they’re going to offer me a rate and that’s that, or if they’re going to ask me to make an offer/negotiable, completely unsure.

Some details, the firm is small, but takes on a lot of clients. I work side by side with graduates from some really well accredited universities, so I know they must make a bit (Obviously not expecting nearly as much). To be clear what I do exactly, it’s mostly Wordpress and Magento work, custom plugin development, as of late I’ve been finishing off/fixing a lot of bugs on a somewhat completed in-depth Wordpress website.

So all in all they could say $10/hr is fair, and I have no idea what the going rate is. Though I know dishwashers around here make that much :stuck_out_tongue:

It all depends on your experience really. I know some designers making up to $2k a day or more just from designing.

You have to start somewhere though/
