As a small business owner you may not think about using interns to help with your business.  But you should!  As long as you have a vision of what you need done and some time to manage the student, you ought to post your position at a local college or university.

I’ve utilized interns for special marketing projects and for day-to-day marketing tasks.  Just make sure you have something “meaty” for them to work on so they stay motivated.  Also, you will need an hour or so each week to give some guidance and feedback.

For the small amount of time involved, it is a win-win situation for both parties.  The student gains experience and builds their resume.  The small business owner gets low or no cost help and up-to-date expertise.
