As society advances, the modern job market increasingly require multi-skilled workers who not only are competent in their professions, but also possess other skills and knowledge to certain degrees. This places high demand for fast, effective, continuous, and cross-discipline learning, something that’s time-consuming, expensive and usually ineffective if you don’t know where to start, when to start and how to start.
The emergence of the sharing economy changes all that. Anyone with competency and experiences in any field can potentially be a Platoker mentor, and sharing his or her insights with would-be learners in informal off-line meetings.

On the other side, for millions of young people who want to add to their skillsets to advance their careers, learning those skillsets in the smart way makes a huge difference – learn hard, and learn smart. The best way to learn it smart is to have an experienced person, who already possess the skills and knowledge, to share with you how, where and what. Such a person can be found on Platoker.com. Being guided in the very beginning makes any endeavour much more likely to succeed.
After all, intellectual capital, is the foundation of all successful endeavours.
