    Unanswered: Career advice

    I've got a few questions that some you who are more experienced than I might be able to answer...

    Getting ready to graduate from the uni, I got a job at a small office doing some Access stuff, but it's really only on an as-needed project basis, and most of the work is done outside of the office.

    How should I be paid for this... by the hour? And if so, how much?

    Also, what job category would someone working on Access fall under? I tried looking on Indeed.com, but there are so many different areas.

    Makes sense...

    I guess what I was really getting at was how do people working on this sort of as-needed project basis go about estimating project hours.

    I imagine an employer might want to know ahead of time how long it's going to take, and how much it's going to be. So I figure it's best to go in with a reasonable estimate ("This project will take x amount of hours, therefore I should get paid y amount").

    StarTrekker answered my other question about the job title via his sig (Access developer) and I found some averages on Indeed.

    Good work

    Estimates are a time consuming and sometimes annoying process.
