    Hello there just happened upon your blog from Google after I entered in, “Job Vacancy” or perhaps something similar (can’t quite remember exactly). In any case, I’m
    pleased I found it because your content is exactly what I’m searching for (writing a university paper) and I hope you don’t mind if I gather some material from here and I will of course credit you
    as the source. Thank you very much.
