Sachez que le CDP doit approuver toutes les offres d’emploi avant publication. Les affichages par des recruteurs tiers ne sont pas autorisés s’ils ne mentionnent pas le nom de l’employeur pour lesquels ils recrutent. All postings must conform with the McGill policy on unpaid internships: we will only allow postings for positions that are unpaid or that pay less than minimum wage for not-for-profit organizations.

If you have any trouble posting a position, please write us at [at]
