12 February | How to ensure fair pay?

What will you learn during this evening?
How do you get paid? And how much? During this evening, you will learn which options exist and their advantages and disadvantages. You will learn what you can ask for your work and how you can calculate a fair hourly rate. You will also find out how you can negotiate that rate in a smarter way, as you will come to understand what should be taken into account when setting your rate. You will know where you need to look for good reference rates and what fair pay actually means in practice. In this way, you will never work for too little money again.
