  1. Wow,
    Very impressive amount of work on behalf of Victoria Job Seekers. Thank you so much.
    I am an employment counsellor in Victoria and I also offer Victoria Jobs – My Weekly Picks every Friday on my Website under Employment Resources. This has certainly increased my web traffic. I publish a bi-monthly Newsletter also with resources, sites, workshops, etc.
    Do you have a more personal bio to look at. It would be wonderful to collaborate sometime.

      Thanks for the comment Marilyn – I actually refer to your company on this page http://yyjworks.com/employer-resources/headhunters-and-other-recruitment-agencies/. I must admit that at the moment I am not being very active about upkeep on the site but simply enjoying a few weeks vacation after the end of the semester. If you’d like to know more about me check out my blog susaninsweden.blogspot.se . I will get in touch with you personally later in the summer to talk about possible collaboration – I agree that working together could be great for Victoria jobseekers. Susan
