For hundreds of years, cafés have served as centres of social interaction in a city.
And good cafés provide patrons with a place to congregate, talk, read, write, entertain one another, or pass the time, whether individually or in small groups.
Among other things, cafés are:
- a neighbourhood hub,
- meeting places,
- a place where news can be exchanged,
- a conversation matrix,
- an informal “club” for its regular patrons,
- a place to do research,
- a rendezvous spot,
- a non-stressful place to sit and do work,
- places where business can be carried out,
- a networking source,
- places of entertainment,
- a place to study,
- a place to interact socially,
- places where careers have started,
- a place to relax, and
- a place to refuel.
Or they can be a place where nothing much happens at all…
Where, for no more than the price of a cheap cup of coffee, you can sit undisturbed for a couple of hours, just watching things happening and people going by.
And it seems that all these things merge together to create an experience where people want to come back, time and time again.
And That’s Just What WE Want…
The GiGS.cafe website is based on the “culture” behind the café, which makes them such popular places to be…
We want it to BE THE place that people looking for gigs / work / jobs / freelance ops etc can use as their “neighbourhood” hub!
Where you can meet and network with other GiGLERS.
Where you can come and learn best practices that will help you succeed in the new “Gig Economy”.
It’s a tall order, but we’re excited to have a go at it!
And I think we’ll be able to do just that as your host brings 40 years of experience in the Careers field to the plate.
Twenty-two of those online. Yep, we’ve been publishing online since 1995, when we launched our first major website – Australia’s Careers OnLine.
If you like what we’re doing here, then please buy us a coffee and help us continue doing it!
