Subject: SHERIDAN COLLEGE - TIME JOBS OPPORTUNITY

Hello,

There's an ongoing survey recruitment exercise for part-time or full-time survey takers. You're paid to shop and evaluate stores and businesses around you. You get to make up to $300 weekly. You'll evaluate and comment on customer service rendered. It also doubles as a great 2nd job and does not affect your present employment or studies.I tried it and i made cool cash, If you are interested you can visit their website at https://www.sheridancollege.ca/working-at-sheridan/join/ to apply and read more about the job.

Best Regards.
