The Power of a Powerful Network

Zeeshan Suhail's picture

Many people ask me how to get involved in international organizations like the UN, the World Bank and other large NGOs, and my answer is simple - networking!

Networking has become a buzzword in recent years and grown in popularity as an effective way of getting jobs in the West, but what countless people dont realize is that networking is an art; it's a process. Relationships must be cultivated and then sustained when one networks. The concept is simple, yet its practice is difficult.

Application deadline:
November 4, 2008

The Skoll Foundation announces that November 4, 2008 is the deadline for receipt of applications for the Skoll Awards for Social Entrepreneurship. The Foundation is looking for social entrepreneurs whose work has the potential for large-scale positive change in the areas of tolerance and human rights, health, environmental sustainability, peace and security, institutional responsibility, and economic and social equity.  Within these issues, it is particularly interested in applications from social entrepreneurs working in five critical sub-issue areas that threaten the survival of humanity – climate change, nuclear proliferation, pandemics, conflict in the Middle East and water scarcity. Award winners will be celebrated at the annual Skoll World Forum following their selection, at the end of March 2009 in Oxford, England.
