College Interns: Brilliant and Cheap
BY Curt Finch
Here in Austin we have the luxury of proximity to the
University of Texas (UT). From this well of intellect
we continually draw for ideas and young energetic labor.
It is a well that never runs dry.
When I started Journyx, we were always broke. We hired
one young lady, Sarah, who was working on her masters in
marketing and she worked for us for years very cheaply
creating our website, testing our software, writing our
documentation. She was awesome.
We've certainly had our duds. But internships don't have
to last that long. You only ask them to stick around
longer if they're adding value.
