We will be paying something, but no one is going to be knocking down our
doors for the salary I'm sure.  For us it would be a chance to expand on
projects we don't normally have time to work on and aren't top priority,
and for the intern it would be an experience/resume builder, but we are
going to offer some salary.  I just don't know what that is :-) said:

I'd hire someone in that position, as long as they understood that it
probably wouldn't be leading to a full time position and wouldn't be
paying a lot. I also don't want to be left high and dry if the person
finds a full time job while working for me.
