Both in my current life and my previous one in IT, I never offer/ed a day rate, gets to messy, plus further down you mention keeping track of hours, so it sounds like you wont be just doing straight days anyhow. Value your work and charge at that rate.
I wouldn’t share my tracking system with the client, just send the invoice, which they can query if they like, but in my many moons of charging I have never been queried on my invoices, maybe I should charge more.
I wouldn’t break down the time per task in my proposal.
And I think if they cant tell you how many resumes you will receive, I would take one of 2 approaches. 1. X dollars per resume, or 2. Y dollars for up to 50 resumes, and $X per each additional resume.
Option 2 at least guarantee’s you a minimum fee if they fall short on the number of resumes, but doesn’t leave you having to service 200 for the same price.
