In which I go eeek

This morning I updated my profile on LinkedIn. I'm not sure how effective this will be. Have you, or do you know anyone who has, got a job through LinkedIn? Also, if you happen to be in a position to recommend me anywhere, please do.

Question: Do I want to work for a Chinese finance/stock trading company, proofreading and editing updates and publications to make them read like native English? I suspect I could do that job with my eyes closed but it is through a job search organisation that allowed me to specify salary so I suspect it pays better than such a job would in New Zealand.

Right, now I'm going to go for a big long walk. This job search thing is kind of stressful, even though Joel says I don't need to do it all at once, I feel like I have to do something every day or I'll lose momentum and do nothing. Which is silly.

Then I will fill up a suitcase with stuff and take the train to Mong Kok, where I'll charm the doorman into letting me in because the landlord hasn't dropped off the key yet.
