What is a typical share allocation for the first employees or consultant working part-time?

I am at the stage of product validation for my idea (building an MVP: website for consumer market). I am currently a sole founder, so I haven't completed a cap table for my company's shares. Great news, is that a recent graduate wants to work part-time with me in the idea, but not as a founder. Therefore, she would be first consultant or employee. What is the typical share allocation for the first employees or consultants, specially working part-time in marketing development? Would appreciate any feedback in this area.

Typically, around 1%, but given such an early stage start-up, it can be more than that, maybe even 2%. In any case that's in addition to the salary.
