Hi all, I have been looking for a job in LA for couple weeks. Since i am new to this area, no friends, no relation, my only way out so far is look at monster.com every other 10 minutes Monday thru Friday. I look at Sunday paper every week. Then i send resume, by fax or by email. The replies are scarce. I think i have enought experience to handle most of the posting. But every thing seems so slow. I just read about cold calling from the previous post. That might be another way out for me. Any company or institution that is worth trying? I am comfortable in most java technology. I am also have two years research experience in scientific/numerical algorithm developments using C. Just hope you can give me some hints on my job hunt. Thanks alot.
