A few words about workers
If you control the link strategy then whoever you hire does not need a link development background. There is no need for it. I believe it is best that my workers have zero SEO knowledge.
I always hire local or at least located within the same country I am in. The reasons I do so is that this helps the campaign run smoothly. Hiring local means the workers are more or less on the same time zone as I am. You can monitor the progress and make adjustments as the work is being done, instead of trying to put out a fire eight hours after the damage was done. Hiring local eliminates cultural and linguistic differences that can negatively impact the success of a campaign.
I have had mixed results with college aged adults. Older workers, 30+ have worked out better for me.
