Use the service WayUp (http://www.wayup.com). Also, make sure you comply with labor laws in your state particularly if this is an unpaid internship. In the state of CA, not doing so can land you in trouble.

We hire our interns through a couple of local colleges. It's worked out well so far and we've turned several into full time hires.

I just hired someone from www.fiverr.com based on a few recommendations to write a press release. It is very affordable, efficient and thus far, I'm extremely happy. This option my buy you some time while you search for the right person.

CEO @ HireKeep - If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle.
Hi Xenofon,

Using craigslist in the case works very well and in most cases free. Wayup.com has a pricing model that is really not favorable to us since you pay per applciation and per filter. That can really start to add up unless there are SPECIFIC skills you are looking for in an intern. Even at that rate chances are you are going to burn through a few hundred dollars before finding someone.

Beyond CL - I think you should find the job board / careers page of the local university from which you would like to pull candidates and post on there. Many of those are free and are quite frequented by college students.

One thing I always do is be completely transparent about the pay, the role and the future opportunity with the company. That usually attracts more people. If it is possible to allow them to work remote after a certain time - include that as that will drive more applications. We have a lot of interns that moved to remote after they have been acclimated to the work environment and the position.

Hope this helps!

We've made connections to several local colleges who have been kind enough to work with us. They are actually very eager to work with start-ups, and have even offered us discounted tables at their career fairs to help in the development of their entrepreneurship programs. I'd say our success rate is 50/50 with interns. The good ones have been great, but the bad ones require a lot of time & care which is something most start-ups have in short supply.
