    Last night I was at a book launch and an expert net working professional picked me out in about 10 seconds and had her card in my hands in about 20 seconds. Her networking skills were really impressive.

  2. Gideon Vos

    A few years ago I sent a message that I was looking for work to all my friends in LinkedIn (and got reactions from all over the world). Now I export the list first and select those that are in Israel. The reactions to my networking activity have been much better.

    When job searching in two different states a few years ago, I had the privilege of taking part in networking workshops. What I learned about poise, confidence, friendliness, and a general desire to help others connect has been the greatest reward outside of just meeting great new people.

    When making aliyah, I contacted every single person in Israel as well as every single Israeli outside Israel for my apartment search. My years of nurturing my network paid off as one of my Linkedin connections recommended me for a room to rent and I was on the plane in less than two weeks!
