Where will the opportunities come from?
I've just spent what seems like a lifetime on www.linkedin.com putting a personal profile together and sending invitations to all the people that I know; it was a bit like writing Christmas cards, you start out with good intentions to write a short personalised note to each of your friends and then give up use the default message and hit "Invite". You can also get a rather attractive graphic to add to your website which you will see on the right hand side of the blog. It certainly generates rather a lot of email traffic which is rather comforting if nothing else. I've also posted the CV to various job sites: www.monster.co.uk, www.jobsearch.co.uk, www.jobsite.co.uk and www.jobs.ac.uk these all offer to mail you lots of jobs daily. Time to sleep.
