Networking can be hard, but it’s easier with a little help from these four applications recommended by writer Emily Green.
- LunchMeet. This app helps you find good people to network with wherever you go by connecting with your LinkedIn account and finding people in your industry who are also interested in networking.
- Business Card Reader. Instead of saving stacks of business cards or losing them along the way, you can save them digitally with this app. Just take a picture of a card with your phone and the app will add the person and his details to your contacts.
- MeetMe. Instead of going back and forth via text, phone or email to figure out a place to meet, just enter where you and the other person are coming from and this app will suggest places in between where you can get together.
- Contacts Journal. This app helps you keep your connections straight by allowing you to keep notes on each one, set up meetings and attach documents related to your connection.
