Networking is not just limited to entrepreneurs and salespeople trying to build their business. it is also popular for individuals teaming together in search of jobs and for small get-togethers of clubs. Fortunately for networkers Rochester Hills has an abundance of places offering quiet places where small to mid-sized groups can get together for sharing.
Your Examiner sought out the best spots in the city for successful networking. Narrowing it down was difficult so some rigid criteria was determined. Factors include the availability of tables, availability of refreshments, availability of parking, supply of electricity, and general atmosphere for holding business or club meetings.
Some great locations fell out of consideration because of these criteria. The Rochester Hills Public Library is one that did not make the cut. Although it scored perfectly on tables and electricity it fails to offer refreshments, conversations must be kept quiet and parking is a challenge at times.
In fact parking kept all of the downtown Rochester venues off the list because of the lack of parking and the difficulty of getting around because of the timing of the traffic lights, which are intentionally off to keep cars moving slowly through the city.
