    Re: Run! Its a Student!

    I started off having loads of R&D time, but theres been a HUGE increase in my work load as of late, so I'm basically 'putting out fires' most of the time now.

    I stupidly mentioned my freelance design work and now have most of the schools promotional material lumped at me now too

    For which you're now charging at the appropriate rate, I presume?

    I got lumbered with the technical aspect of putting together publicity stuff aswell, with guidance from the media studies teacher. He insisted I used Quark (which I got training on. And by training, I mean the help files) but managed to use The GIMP for some more recent stuff

    hahahahahaha,

    charging the appropriate rate, thats funny.....wait, you're serious? no.

    When i do a large job (prospectuses, options booklets, etc) i get a bit of a bonus, but nowhere near my going rate. And even these bonuses have started to disappear now they're 'used to' me doing it.

    May have to give them a kick up the bum

    Re: Run! Its a Student!

    I have found recently that my job description has been altered to state that I am required to keep my head while all about me are losing theirs.

    It would appear that I am not allowed to get stressed - especially now that OFSTED are on their way!

    lol. Old post, but man, I wish the management where I am had this mentality... especially since there is absolutely no incentive what so ever to be roped into doing other s***.
