Short-term contract at McGill available!

Hi all,

If there are any non-McGill grad students out there who are interested in a contract at McGill that would be 10 hours per week during office hours (flexible, you could choose when, but must be physically in the office) at $13.75 an hour for the next few months, please get in touch with me. I have a friend at our Law Faculty who is looking for someone to work with confidential student files so it can’t be a McGill student. Very clerical, apologies. If you know anybody, please pass them on.
