      I am on LinkedIn, and the job section was useful for pointing me in the direction of a few agencies and job adverts, but all were ultimately fruitless.

      I keep my profile up-to-date only as I think it's something I think one should do in this day an age, but as yet, I'm struggling to find a use for it. That said - i assume it's one of those things that the more you use it and put the networking effort in, the more you get out!

      Oh and one more thing - about automated e-mails from job boards rather than agencies:

      I am a Product Design Engineer; I have a degree in Industrial Design and a Masters in Design Engineering, and work as a Product Designer. I am not therefore interested in the barrage of adverts and opportunities for Graphic Designers, Electrical Engineers, System Design, or Railway Engineering!!

      You didn't mention Interior design, POS or automotive ;-)

      That's a good one. Is that what they're calling industrial designers these days? :D
