Have any of you had the experience of
being a solo contract technical writer
and then taking on your first subcontractor?
Let's assume
I've identified the person to whom
I plan to offer this
subcontracting opportunity.
What are some of the practical
I'm considering having the subcontractor
work for/with
me a few hours per week for 1 month on a trial
basis to see how it goes. Let's assume this person
accepts that opportunity. What do I need to
do about providing paychecks?
Should I inform the company I'm doing the
work for that there is another technical
writer (my subcontractor) involved in
the project now?
