There will be several info sessions next week, so make sure you attend one before you apply. This position is for the 2017-2018 academic year.  If you’re more into marketing and looking for a job that starts sooner, apply to be a marketing peer for Career Services.

Both of these positions are posted on Gaucholink- go check them out!
