How workers are using Slack to fast-track job hunts

Slack, the workplace communication software, is increasingly being used by job-hunters for networking purposes, The Wall Street Journal reported June 27. 

These slack channels have been formed from groups of industry professionals and are often invite only. Once inside, the members connect with each other and even put some job-seekers in touch with hiring managers, giving them a fast-track into the job. Members are using the channels to network, ask industry-related questions and look for new roles. 

Finding the right slack channels can also be difficult since they are often not openly advertised but spread through word-of-mouth. 

"It does seem to be kind of an insider club," Jimmy Daly told the Journal. He co-founded Superpath, a Slack group for content marketers. "For the most part, people let you in on the secret as they discover it."
