This last week was a great week of networking.  Met with two executive recruiters and re-engaged with a former CEO of mine who now runs a VC firm.  As it ends up, his VC group is funding a start-up here in Irvine, and I went through the interview process with the management team.  Fingers crossed as I felt I did pretty good in the interviews and I really liked the team and feel like I could contribute. 

You never know when your next networking outreach will result in a job opportunity.  My friend is from Austin and very rarely invests in companies outside of Texas.  I got lucky (if this goes through), but it does help to network even if you don’t think anything will come of it.
