What does it involve? Basically finding web sites. Ready2.com is a portal for women divided into channels like Ready2wear and Ready2play. In each channel we recommend a top 10 list of sites. It's my job to find these. So, I surf the net to see what's going on. Trinny (Woodall, a Ready2.com founder) has said it's being the Sherlock Holmes of the web.

How did you get the job? I'm a 'First Tuesday' story. I bumped into Charlie Muirhead (Orchestream) who mentioned that they were looking for women who knew about the net. So I e-mailed them and, after a couple of gruelling interviews, got the job.

Best points? Being part of a start-up and finding really great sites.

Worst points? The usual lack of time and online ordering companies that don't keep their promises.

Salary scale: £30,000.
