I've dived behind the overt job market today and made three good contacts.
One... is the woman who runs a very funky little PR company that I e-mailed expressing an interest to work there. Been invited to meet next week.
Two... is the main player(s) behind a recent Web 2.0 launch, not hard to work out which one. Meeting being set up as part of the ongoing relationship-building tasks for my mate's start-up.
Three... is a friend of someone who works at a very large entertainment company. Asking him to get my name and resume in front of the 100's for a cool job that I spotted.
(All without stepping out into the -25 wind chill.)
