Based on what we have learned during conversations with our client, Brainstorm Creative Resources is advertising a pay rate range of $50 - $65/hour. Given the full-time nature of this role, we believe it's both correct and useful to mention that these hourly rates are the basis for salaries ranging from $100K to $130K. We are looking forward to receiving inquiries and applications from demonstrably talented professionals at various places on their individual career paths. 

Brainstorm Creative Resources pays competitively and actively encourages our employer clients to do the same. However, it is unlikely (but not impossible) that we will be able to pay less experienced applicants at the top of the stated salary range. More experienced applicants can expect that we will make a strong, evidentiary case to our client, to pay you at the top of the range. 

The actual rate and/or salary offered will be commensurate with experience and market norms. It will also be based on some or all of the following factors: credentials as detailed in your resume, your portfolio, interview experiences with Brainstorm Creative Resources and our client, and quality of reference providers and references provided.
