Victoria is a very hard job market.... I know of Computer Sci Masters working
retail for 8.50 an hour... good luck.

Start at Uvic. specifically the fine arts and music dept. strong ea leanings,
maybe you will get lucky. Government jobs are the best bet, there is a web site
with government job postings, I'll see if I can find it??

I lived there for 20 years so if you have any more specific questions email me
off list and I will try to put you in a good way.
