Getting good work

Ok, this next question might seem a little stupid but I'm curious...

I was talking to my dad earlier this evening and he said that in order to get a good job at a good company in Israel, your only option is to know people who can get you a good position. How much truth (if any) is there in this?

2 questions: (1) define good job, (2) define good company.

If it'll help, I can tell you about myself a bit: I work in software in a large company, where I didn't know anyone when I landed the job. Then again, I came with 2 years experience from a company where my friend's Dad was the CEO...
Protexia (getting what you want/need thanks to connections) pulls a lot of wieght in Israel. It helps, but it's not the most important thing. What job would you be looking for?
Something in commerce/finance... along the lines of an accountant but a bitter higher up than that.
