Request to do something outside of my job contract.
I am teaching in a private college which is linked to a main government university on the same campus.
Recently I was called by the office of the university (this is not even the same department I work in) to help with a student. They said the student is applying for a university in America, and I asked if I can help....OK no problem.
A little later the office calls me. They say that actually, the student is not at this university, but, the student is in a completely separate province to the one I am in. Now it appears I am to call this student on the internet and interview them. After the interview I am to sign some papers and comment on the students English. All this seems very strange to me and I wonder what is going on. For one thing I do not know if the person I interview is really the same person.
Does anyone know what the true intentions are here?
