Subject: Student Employment Opportunity


My name is Brendan Hansen and I manage a group of student tutors at INTO OSU who work with international students on a variety of topics. We are looking to hire a number of tutors for the coming school year and I was curious if you could potentially share the job description with students who might be interested, perhaps through a department wide student list? I've attached the job description to this email.
If you have any questions please let me know.

Thank you so much,


Brendan Hansen
