Welcome to Meeting Point!
The potential to grow and learn through the interaction with other people is nearly infinite. Often we just lack the courage to approach others for help or think we don’t have anything to offer in return.
Meeting Point provides you with a safe space to practice networking, to fish for knowledge and to find buddies that are on the same journey. We aim for collective learning! One way of accumulating knowledge is via 1:1 interaction – you can send each other messages and invite others to connect. Another way is by sharing and reading personal stories.
The power of storytelling
Stories make ideas stick and help us persuade in communication. Storytelling is also one of the most powerful leadership skills. You can practice the skill of storytelling by publishing a short story under ‘My stories’. Nobody expects a book or blogpost, but rather a crisp piece of experience that you would like to share with others. As individuals we tend to think that our problems are unique. However, job seekers and career transitioners tend to face the same questions and challenges. So why not write about your experience so others can learn from it?
The power of Networking
Networking is really important for career growth but it doesn't come natural to all of us. One of the best ways to develop a strong network is to be of value to the people around you and to offer help and advice. What you can practice with your friends you can also practice in Meeting Point with people you don't know yet. So start making connections, offer feedback and be generous to exchange your valuable experiences. We believe what comes around goes around and that you can count on other people's support when you need it.
