"At one of the Meet & Greets, I received the offer letter for the role of a business analyst. I cannot thank you enough for having helped me and are helping so many other women like me. Keep up the great work!"
"Thanks to JobsForHer and ThoughtWorks for providing an opportunity to restart our careers. It was the best training I have had with several of their leaders motivating and inspiring us a lot. The trainers were outstanding, patiently clearing our doubts and ensuring that we understood the concepts by using various examples. It gave me an insight into how to approach an interview and get ahead in my career. I would highly recommend the Vapasi Bootcamp to all women in tech restarting their careers."
"I got an opportunity to attend an interview based on my skillset in Java Technologies. The interviewer considered my previous experience even though I am on a career break. That was a great feeling."
"The Meet & Greet was extremely encouraging. Meeting the leadership and interacting with them was a learning experience."
Frequently Wondered Questions (FWQ)
What is a Meet-and-Greet?
Is it an offline event where you meet the company representatives? Can you apply for a job on the spot? Will there be an interview?
Questions like these will be swimming around in your head when you hear about an offline networking event, sometimes triggering a host of emotions — excitement at the thought of meeting a potential employer (with nothing to lose), nervousness because you have never attended one of these events before, anxiety because you don’t know if you’re good enough to attend this event!
But the answer to all these questions is YES!
Very often, companies that are looking to hire women professionals with specific skill sets, on a high priority, organise a Meet-and-Greet event to get to know candidates better, and give them an opportunity to interact and network with senior leaders of the company.
Q 1) What does a Meet-and-Greet involve?
A) An event of this kind is usually for shortlisted candidates who have registered earlier and have gone through a selection process. The shortlisted candidates are then invited via email / sms to attend the Meet-and-Greet. Sometimes, this event is also a walk-in event, where it is not mandatory to register prior to the event. You get to attend a panel discussion with company representatives on career-related topics to help you better understand the workforce before you step into it.
Q 2) Where can I find information on these events?
Q 3) Where are these Meet-and-Greet events conducted?
A) These events are mostly offline, which means they are conducted in various locations across India by the companies that are hosting these events.
