Until very recently, there were few opportunities to meet-up with like-minded people from an international background in Bologna. Various groups and associations came and went. One particular success story is the International Women’s Forum. It’s an association for women and run by women with a long established history of organising events behind them. They help women in every aspect of living here and making this home so definitely a worthwhile option to look up – if you’re a woman.
Two years ago an Internations group kicked off which sought to spur on more networking within the international community. Its purpose is to get people interacting with each other whether they are here on a short term or long term stint. In this sense, it has had a more direct impact as a breeding ground for promoting commercial networking among members.
The online social sphere is now more alive than ever. Consequently, more interest groups have sprung up which is never a bad thing. You can’t have enough names and numbers in your little black book. In this regard, your social and professional circumstances in Bologna can depend on how many people you can reach out to as if you were still on your home turf.
ABC News reports that approximately 80 percent of today’s job seekers are landing their next position through networking.
