Re: Question for people with tech writing businesses
I'm working on a proposal to do a large documentation project for a local organization--more than I care to do by myself, as I have other, non-TW projects competing for my time. However, I'm not sure the best approach to take to staff such a project. I suppose I could advertise for a contractor, but given the time of year, I'm thinking of looking for an intern. I realize I'd have to supervise closely and do a lot of teaching, but that's fine with me.--
Any strong cautions, one way or the other (contractor vs. intern)? Any suggestions where to troll for interns efficiently?
This is all very tentative, as I don't have the contract yet. So please, no résumés. I'm just looking for guidance from people who've been here before.
