I have only 9 months to one year of hands-on experience.

This morning, I received a phone call from a recruiter that I was a fit for an one-year contract position in the banking industry in downtown, NY. And I was asked about my hourly rate.

At this point, I have no idea if there are benefits other than overtime pay.

Although I am inexperienced, I am SCJP, SCWCD, SCEA (Part I), and WebLogic certified. What hourly rate should I expect? Please help.

Well....

Starting salary for recent college grads can range from $45-80k depending on the company, college, and other factors.

Contract pay should be higher, given that it's temporary and even if you're a W-2, you may not get full benefits. If it's a 1099 it should be even higher.

I would think with those certifications, you should go for about $50-60 an hour(since it is Manhattah, banking firm where some projects can be very demanding).
