Job fishing.

I have been looking for a job via the Internet ever since I graduated. This process is usually referred to as "job hunting." However, I have come to believe that this is a misnomer and that the correct term should be "job fishing." This is has nothing to do with the 'Net being involved, but with the fact that after throwing your resume in like a bated hook you proceed to sit and wait for a tug on the line. Hunting, on the other hand, is far more active and involves stalking your prey. So if you go job fishing, be patient and eventually something will bite.
