Slack became a popular tool used by in-office and remote companies to better connect, collaborate, and communicate with employees.
And from that, others discovered the power of Slack for networking and sharing advice in their own communities.
Now there are thousands of various Slack communities based on various topics that like-minded people can join and share ideas with.
Communities are huge in the digital world today and I credit Slack for playing a pivotal role in this. Today, I highly recommend joining a Slack community to better learn and grow professionally.
Currently, I’m in four Slack communities and I’ve learned so much from other individuals. Plus, I get to share my thoughts and ask questions that help me in my career endeavors.
