- Yearly to weakly salary: $$240,000\div 54=4,615.38,\quad (52\;\mbox{weeks per year})$$
- Weekly salary to hourly rate: $$4,615.38\div 40=115.38,\quad (40\; \mbox{hours per week})$$

Have in mind that full-time employees have some other benefits, such as healthcare insurance, payroll taxes, unemployment tax, employer-contributed retirement plans, paid holiday or vacation days, bonuses, etc. It is important to consider these benefits as well as the salary offered when choosing between jobs. This calculator can help to weigh out all jobs offers. On the other hand, freelancers provide their own rates which can be hourly, daily, or weekly, etc. They generally do not have benefits such as paid time off, cheaper health insurance, or any other monetary perks typically associated with full-time employment.
