When is it time to hire a full-time link developer?

I have tons of content sites now and I think it's about time to hire a full time linker. I was thinking of going to the local community college and pasting some fliers or posting on CL. I feel like paying a set amount per link (based on PR) would be the best way to pay to make sure someone works their a** off.

Those with full time SEO in-house, what do you do? How do you pay, how do you train, etc.?

Where I used to work we would go to the local university and take a few students on a gap year that are studying in the computer department and hire them for full time link building.

They were paid a basic wage, not on a per link basis - only trouble is they become so bloody good then you have to let them go at the end of the year!

Craig, how did you oversee their actual job? Did they submit link reports? How were they instructed to get the links?
