Pittsburgh is the place to be. We’ve known this for a while, but now everyone else seems to be catching on.
From Uber to Facebook and Google to Apple, tech companies are setting up shop in the Steel City, which means there’s never been a better time to boost your professional life and push your networking further. That’s why you should try out Shapr, a new app that makes networking simple and efficient.
Here’s the deal: Shapr is a networking app that will help you get connected to other ambitious and interesting professionals in Pittsburgh. The app is free and easy to setup: all you have to do is create a profile, add some basic info about yourself and the types of people you’d like to meet, and you’re off. The app will use the specific interests you choose such as #marketing #tech or #graphicdesign to help you match.
Each day, Shapr will curate a batch of 10-15 relevant professionals in the city, based on common interests, job title, and location. Just swipe right to connect if a profile catches your eye. When the desire to connect is mutual (all swipes are anonymous), a match is made and you’ll be able to message your new connection. Grab a coffee, meet up for lunch, or jump right into chatting about your next project.
Shapr makes it easy and fun to meet new people and is already taking off in cities around the country including New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, and it seems Pittsburgh is catching on. There are more than 700,000 people who have used Shapr to get career advice, find a co-founder, find their dream job, fundraise, or simply meet like-minded professionals.
It’s easy, so learn more by trying it out. Download Shapr for free (iPhone and Android), and get started today.
