Help Wanted ?

Sunday, April 13, 2008 | 08:21 PM

My workload continues to rise. It has now reached a point where many of my favorite writings -- linkfest and columns -- are falling by the wayside.

Rather than totally dropping some favorites, I am thinking of adding some assistance, perhaps an intern or two to help me out.

On top of that, on deck is a large, complex research project that I have not yet accepted. If I decide to do this, it is going to require one or two research assistants.

A few friends have suggested hiring some college interns.

What are people's thoughts on working with interns?  Should I reach out to local colleges (NYU or Columbia)? Any specific ideas, suggestions, experiences to share?

I did it in college - but technical stuff, R&D at local med school. I got the appointment by way of references - profs recommended me to the research team. I'd go talk to profs at NYU or Columbia and ask them if they've got students looking for part-time work they could recommend.

If the prof's ask for a cut - go to a different prof.
