The 2021-2022 school year has been underway for a few weeks now, but it's never too early to start thinking about next semester. If you're going to be in need of a co-op placement, internship or student job, the Canadian secret service aka the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) is hiring Montrealers for 2022 — and you don't have to be James Bond to apply.
CSIS has open job opportunities for students in various fields, including business/commerce, computer science, engineering, political/social sciences and more.

The CSIS student jobs are available in different cities across Canada, including Montreal. More specifically, jobs located in Montreal are in the following fields: business and administration, science and technology, policy and governance and analysis.
For example, if you're a CEGEP student and this is your first work term, you'll make $15.40 an hour. If you're a graduate student in your fourth work term, you'll make $27.73 an hour.
"Applications are required early to provide sufficient time for students to obtain the highest level of security clearance in Canada," according to CSIS.
Applicants must actually go through an assessment process to obtain "enhanced top secret" security clearance. These steps include a security interview and polygraph test as well as credit and financial verifications.
CSIS says "drug use is an important factor considered in your reliability and suitability assessment during the selection process" and advises applicants not to use drugs from the time they submit their application.
It also asks for discretion throughout the process.
"Do not discuss your application with others (including on social media) besides your partner, or close family members - who should also be reminded about the need to be discreet," CSIS says.

"The idea is not to condense the working hours into [four] days, but rather to review our ways of doing things and our quality time invested, with the aim of working better!" Eidos Head of Studio David Anfossi explained in a Q&A.
"Above all, we want to increase the productivity and well-being of our employees."
He said the company is currently working on a transition plan. One idea is to reduce all meetings within the company from one hour to 30 minutes.
Anfossi suggested pandemic-related remote work restrictions and emphasis on employee well-being pushed the company to rethink its approach to its operations and culture. He also said Eidos was inspired by a four-day workweek pilot project in Iceland.
He called the move to reduce working hours "another step towards the embodiment of the studio's values, building a healthy, creative, and sustainable work environment for our employees."
Eidos is responsible for projects such as Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers video game adaptations, among others.
