So what exactly is this Networking???  I thought it sounded kinda
subversive...like something the mafia would do!  How do you network
without being a nusiance to the busy professionals who are the subject of
your inquiries?

I have an idea that men are going to be more successul at it than women
'cos they are more aggressive in talking to people and making unsolicited
contacts. It sounds like an extension of the "old boy network" that has
been prevalent, in the UK at least, in the past..So do we start our own
Old Girl Network"??
If this is how i have to get my next job..sorry, make that my FIRST
job..my heart sinks.  

Insiration/insight anyone?
