I work for a small web development company that has been very good to me.
I started as an intern a year or so ago and have been interning over the summers and contracting during school. Recently they lost a few develops to a new startup and asked me to start coming into office full time.
After a month of coming in, they hired two new interns and placed them under my supervision. I am leading their projects and making great progress on them. I feel like I work very well with the team and even though I am quite junior, I feel I have stepped up to the "plate".
I got approached by one of the two partners and was asked if I would consider going full time as an employee - I was ecstatic to say the least.
My question is - going from an intern to a contractor to a full time employee, how can I negotiate pay and benefits? Am I in a position even?
