Networking is still one of the best ways to find a job, but some people simply don’t feel comfortable reaching out to others.
Inspired by the book Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazzi, LunchMeet -- an app that works through LinkedIn -- does all the hard work for you. Just search the location and timeslot of your availability, and LunchMeet will hook you up with others in the same area who are also available for lunch, coffee, or drinks. You can then use the in-app messaging feature to arrange a meeting.
LunchMeet is a great app for networkers looking to boost their careers, land their dream jobs, or get valuable advice from experienced entrepreneurs and consultants.
