I am fond of meetups big time these days. I find it one of the best way to fulfill my career needs and I strongly feel that it helps and can help you too.
Disclaimer: Not promoting meetup but sharing my two cents
What is meetup: It’s a website www.meetup.com. You can register there using your facebook or linkedin logins and start exploring groups around your place of living on your area of interest.
It has lot of useful and useless groups too J
Coming to the hacking part. I am using the word Hacks because that is one of the most used jargons these days otherwise what I meant was using this platform to improve your career further J
How you can use these and similar formats in your career:-
- Learning : New skill
- Improving: Existing skill
- Networking : With like minded talents
- Explore: Job Opportunities posted in the group
- Employee Referral: Connect with employees of your aspiring companies to share your profile thru referral mode (always first preference for employers)
- Presentation Skill: Create an opportunity to talk on your understanding of the skill
- Interviews: How to interview or how to answer well in the interviews
- Startup: Get to know on new startups or avail chance to be co-founder with like minded fellas or join interesting startups who are part of these groups
- Many more
End of the day, a feel good factor that you did not waste your time in doing window shopping but learnt a skill J
