Are you a networker? Are you keeping up to date with everything on your chosen sector? Some of you will say “Yes” , some will say “No” but the truth is, probably not as much as you should be!
This is why things like meetups are fantastic, especially if you are working in a niche industry. If you are not aware, meetup.com is a place that brings people together to do, explore, teach and learn the things that help them come alive!
Meetup was founded in 2002 and since then has continued to grow, now with 29.33 million members, 264,000 groups and 448,000 monthly meetups run across 184 countries. Meetup has helped build communities and networks as well as friends and relationships, but what does this have to do with recruitment? Well you can gain so much from a meetup event and generally they are free!
We have already begun working with the Sitecore User Group UK London and PHP London meetups. Not just to host events with them but to provide further value from offering market advise to the attendees, telling them what skills clients are looking for, giving them ideas of expected rates and salaries and if they are looking for a role, we can certainly help with that as well!
The key thing here is that we are able to give a hands on approach to recruiting by working directly with the meetup communities as an added benefit. We are not there to offer jobs or sell ourselves, we are there to offer you value and help you in your career, wherever that may be!
On top of Sitecore and PHP we will be announcing a number of other meetups that we will be working with closely through 2017 across the markets that we cover.
If you have a meetup and would like to see us involved then get in touch with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with some details on your event.
