Intrepid readers, today we begin in a bold new direction – south of the border.  I can’t really vet these oppurtunities in advance unless I get answers back myself.  If you get an answer back saying that they can’t hire you because you are Canadian, contact me and I will remove the link.  I’ll be separating out the two countries for those who want to stick with Canadian postings.
