Question about Visual Design Solutions

I'm an experienced web/graphic designer making a lateral move into
the User Interface realm and have just landed an opportunity to
design a small but important CMS system for a client.
My question is: is there an expected number of versions or examples
of user interface visual design solutions/directions clients expect?
In the graphic design realm the expectation was to offer three
solutions and then further develop the chosen one.
Does anyone have any experiences to offer or guidelines they've
found particularly helpful? I have to offer a proposal to the client
in a few days.
Thank you!

User Experience job levels.

I'm in a successful start up (meaning there are real paid customers
for a real product.) So far I am the only UX person and I need to
educate the culture here on UX skill levels similar to management
tracks and technical tracks. Does any one have examples from their
current or past company that they could share?
