I have an associate's in graphic design (currently working on a bachelor's in digital media), and I interviewed back in the fall for a position as a design intern with a company in my area that makes cabinetry for the medical industry. I didn't get hired, but the other day the company's marketing director sent me an email asking if I'd like to do some contract work on a postcard project beginning next month. I was hoping for advice pertaining specifically to what sort of rates I should charge, although I'm sure I'll have more questions as I proceed with the project. This is my first professional work in the design field since I graduated in the spring, and I'm really grateful that they're giving me this opportunity. I just don't want to let them down.
