Local Job:

Hi, My name is Grant Hoel and I am an alumnus of the University of Minnesota Duluth. I am looking for someone who can create shapefiles and maps using ArcGIS or QGIS. These will be used in the renewable energy industry. This would hopefully consist of 10-20 flexible hours/week and compliment your time as a student well.

A fitting candidate would have some availability for communication during regular business hours but could manage the majority of their workload on their own schedule. Pay is $16-$22/hr depending on your competency.

If interested, please contact me at grant@skyharborlimited.com or (763) 439-0943

Best Regards,
