    Introducing: JobCat
    The Northwestern University Associated Student Government is offering a new service. JobCat connects Northwestern students with Evanston residents who can use their help or expertise, including everything from snow shoveling and babysitting to website design and piano lessons. JobCat works both ways — residents can post jobs that they need completed, and students can list the services that they are willing to provide. JobCat makes it convenient to contact the owner of any listing with just the click of a button.
