There are many reasons why one should attend meetups, here are just a few:

  1. To learn more about a certain industry. You can talk to others who have been in the industry longer and are willing to share how they got to where they are.
  2. To learn from powerful speakers. Use the event as an opportunity to be motivated by others and keep up with trends in your field.
  3. To increase your visibility. Treat the event as an opportunity to see and be seen. You never know who’s watching!
  4. To create relationships. Meet people in your field who want to give you a chance to succeed. They could be a new LinkedIn contact, a new mentor, or your next colleague someday.
  5. To become comfortable with the interviewing process. Practice your elevator pitch and gain confidence on your interviewing skills in a relaxed environment.
