Join one of Israel’s many professional networking groups.
Long ago, the Israelis invented professional networking but called it by a different name. They called it Protekzia (or Vitamin P as it is commonly known today).
It’s a well established fact that in Israel, if you want something, need to get something done or be accepted into a specialized fraternity or group, the best way is through a connection or with Protekzia.
Some say that if you want to get into a particular unit in the army you don’t do it in the normal way – apply, try out etc. Your dad’s best friend, Moishe, who fought with him in the Yom Kippur War, is now the Minister of Defense. Dad will give him a call, he’ll call someone else and organize it.
