Website: https://studenthire.ca/

Job Summary: At StudentHire, their mission is to address the student debt problem by connecting students with opportunities to make money and gain experience, working when they have time. The "gig-economy" is a common phrase that is associated with the type of flexible work we curate for students.

They are hoping to connect with graphic design students at the U of A (or students in other programs that teach graphic design skills), as they are looking to create a small core group of graphic design students that can take gigs from their platform and work closely with them, providing feedback to make sure they are building a marketplace that really does suit their needs. 

Because they are launching their new platform in the next couple weeks, this is somewhat time sensitive so talk to them soon! 

Please send an email to aprince@studenthire.ca if you are interested in getting involved. We understand this is the busiest time of the semester for most students, but there is no requirement to start taking gigs right away. They simply want to start building this group!
