One of the Brisbane recruiting agents I was in contact with when still in NZ basically told me that my job-hunting life would be much easier once I got my butt over here. Well, I herewith declare, for the world to know, that he was right. So, oh unnamed one, I owe you for the advice; because without those comments I doubt things would have gone as they have.
Took me five days, a bit more internet activity plus one interview, and I do have a contract job until March, which has a good chance of being extended further than that.
Not bad. Didn't have much time to do anything else but attend to these things, really, but now that they are done—with a gazillion others waiting in the wings, but they can wait until Monday; maybe—I shall allow myself to relax just a little and maybe start catching up with some people I have been neglecting up to this point.
