Hello again,

I guess I didn't give as much information as I needed to. I am in Houston,
Texas. Also, I guess this would be considered an entry-level position. The
person I have interviewed has never done any kind of contract work before,
and she will be an independent contractor. She will be on-site most, if not
all, of the time. For now, we'll only need her about 10 hours a week for a
month at a time every 3 months or so (right before a CD release).

Hopefully this info is a bit more helpful.

Thanks,
Alyssa

It's going to depend a whole lot on what part of the country you work in.
