This one caught my eye on the Seek.com.au jobs feed on the right hand side of this bloggy. I wonder if it would suit someone who is looking for experience in social networks but doesn’t want to take a 9-5 job in the area yet? Plus it would keep you out of trouble/off Facebook on the weekends.

As always, come back here and give us the goss – how totally bad was the interview, how crappy is the salary, what benefits should you ask for, does this lipstick go with this skirt? We’re here to help. And commiserate. And be nosy. Oh, and I’ll prep you for the Forum Moderation bit. I’m good at that. 🙂
