Hey Guys

I am currently at a point of returning to graphic design after a period of absence, and having not been active for some time, I am interested in taking on a short-term placement within an agency; I am not particularly concerned with location as I will be moving regardless. I would be most obliged if anybody has any suggestions in regards to companies that offer placements, or indeed any sites that would be of use in this endeavour.
On a separate note, I am also looking to start attending some industry events, or job fairs, and once again, if you can be of help, then that would be welcome.

Thanks for your help.
