I didn't realize the market for unemployed writer / programmers was so
large. :) Is moonlighting allowed? I had a recruiter hit me up for a
similar job, 25 hours per week and no moonlighting and much lower pay
than you would expect for the job. Specifically hiring for students or
interns is a great way to bring on help when you don't have the budget
for a fully-qualified full-time person to do the work, but you still
need to cover a few extra hours. Hiring temps or contractors is another
option, but not usually as cost-effective as students and interns. They
already limited the hiring by specifying the pay rate and hours per
week. I don't see how specifying students or interns would serve to
limit it any further than that.
