Hi, I’m a former Canberra resident (Flynn, Scullin) and I’ve been living in Greece for the last 21 years. I’m sure that if you haven’t been living under a rock on an island somewhere you probably have some inkling of how bad things have gotten here recently with the outlook for the near future being bleaker still.
I’m thinking very seriously of moving back to Canberra but I’m quite out of touch with what the job scene is like in my chosen profession of Graphic Design.
I’m interested in finding out if there is any way to communicate with design studios, advertising companies and newspaper or magazine publishers other than just checking the regular job-hunting sites from this end. If the nature of the profession there is anything like it is here in Athens then jobs may be secured by word-of-mouth as much as by public advertisement in the market place.
Any advice for a homesick Canberran that might help point me in the right direction?
