My favorite jobs in Israel mailing list, Digital Eve Israel, has just announced their first speed networking event for 2008. It's a great opportunity to meet a lot of people who might know where your dream job is waiting.
Susan Fisher, co-chair of Digital Eve Israel, recently posted about this event on the list.
What is Speed Networking?
You chat for a few minutes with someone you've never met, a whistle blows and then you move on to the next person. It's a great way to meet lots of people very quickly.
The goal of this event is for you to meet 20+ Devas and go home with lots of business cards and a list of everyone who was there.
You need to register in advance so that the organizers can plan a buffet but also so that they can create a list of all the attendees and their contact information for you to take home.
There will be a small charge to cover the buffet.
How do you register?
Via an email to Susie Kaufman (susiek18 [at] bezeqint.net).

This is a short profile of yourself of 1 – 3 sentences. It may be your job, your skills or anything else you want people to know about you. Think of it as your resume in a few lines. If you're looking for a job in Israel, this paragraph needs to be honest but hard-hitting in selling you.
I'm Israel Israeli. I have had five years experience in search engine optimization and would know like to move to a larger internet company role with marketing responsibility. I also enjoy jazz music and volunteering with Latet.
If you register and find you can't make it – please email Susie to cancel. The cost is NIS 75, and you're asked to bring cash in the exact amount. Bring a pen too, but also resumes and business cards where relevant.
The evening is being organized by Susan Fisher & Leemor Machnai (Digital Eve Israel's chairs).
This location is being provided at no charge by Deva Liane Thompson.

This is the fifth networking evening DEI has done and every single one has been fun, Susan says. I've registered and am planning on being there. Look for me in my orange rugby shirt, perhaps talking to one of our Deva bloggers: Rochelle, Vivian, Nira, Lisa, Miriam, Adriane, Nancy, Karin, Rebecca or Hadassah.
