Flying internationally and am paid an hourly rate. Do I bill for the entire 20+ hour flight time? I certainly wouldn’t be on a plane if it weren’t for the job, so I am thinking I should. Thoughts?

Aside from the specifics that people are talking about above... Always yes, charge for travel time. As a freelancer or contract, it's all opportunity cost. You are committing to them, so they need to pay for that time.

Charge your day rate. Which if you’ve figured it right, should cover. Personally, I don’t do hourly. Hourly is bullshit.

The OP question isn't about hourly versus day rate but whether they should get paid for travel time - the answer is Yes, 100%. This type of stuff and its terms should be spelled out in your contract agreement. Sounds like they aren't so you may want to discuss with whomever has hired you and give them a heads up in writing so there are no surprises and conflict there when you send your invoice later. At minimum, you should get paid 8 work day hours for each travel day or best case scenario for all the travel hours.

What does the Investor Relations career path look like for someone coming in at an early-ish level? I’ve heard it’s kind of dead-end and doesn’t really teach you any hard skills but pretty easy, especially if you can produce a decent track record of fundraising.

Anyone know people who took this path?
