    Hi,

    I keep on wanting to apply for a job in the DNA forensic laboratory but I somehow miss the advertisements for vacancies all the time. I am completely experienced and qualified, as well as enthusiastic to embark on a full time career in this field. Where should I look to be informed about vacancies at all times? I am in Cape Town at the moment, but willing to relocate.
