If you're anything like me, you're constantly on the go, which can mean that it can be difficult to keep track of your work and personal relationships. People are more aware than ever about the importance of networking these days, and there are various platforms available to aid you in doing just that. Here are a few of our favourites:
Perhaps one of the most notable site's for establishing connections and moving your career forward is LinkedIn. Acting like an electronic CV, the business connections you make are able to sift through your past experience to see if you'd be the right candidate for available roles.
Undoubtedly, the internet provides us with the perfect platform for investigating everything under the sun, (and beyond). Reddit is an area for individuals with similar interests to collaborate and request information, creating niche and relevant dialog's. It is a forum in which, in the 'Ask Me Anything' thread, public and notable figures can respond to questions about their lives/careers.
If you wish you could find people with similar interests to you, but you're not sure of how to go about it, Meetup is the app for you. It is an ideal method of connecting with different people in huge cities. It's really easy to navigate too. On this site, activity postings work similar to club groups on facebook. Members can see what people are interested in their event, and can create as many events as they'd like for themselves and others to attend. With a vast array of clubs to choose from, there's no doubt that you'll be able to discover a club of like-minded people with similar interests.
Every one of us has many different facets to our lives, which can mean that we require different partners in crime for each one of them. Our gym buddy isn't necessarily going to be our music buddy, for instance. The app works through selecting local events in large cities and gives users opportunities to find meaningful relationships founded on common interests. What's more, is that the founders of ICBRKR put events through a screening process to make sure that every event made is one of high quality and likely to support the growth of long-lasting relationships. The app is also invite-only, meaning they do not allow users in that they believe to be insincere.
