I have a small company and we are constantly looking for contractors (we plan to have employees in the future, but for now we want to stick to contractors). I noticed if I say that interns are welcome to apply to our jobs, we get more candidates. Even though some of them are students they end up being very knowledgeable and bright, plus you don't have to pay them the same rate as aa industry vet with 15+ years of experience.
Is there anything I need to do specifically if I have an "intern" position in my company? Can I just bring the student in and treat him as a regular contractor?
