Introducing You to Communities!

HackPack is more than a site to find jobs, grants and fellowships — it is a COMMUNITY.

We took our first step to grow the community, when we launched our Secret Meet-ups — small journalistic events in interesting locations with experts, so you can improve your career and meet fellow colleagues.

Now we are expanding with Communities to make your world a little bit smaller and help you collaborate with the larger journalism community.

What are Communities?

How does it work?

How do you see who else is in your group?

Easy! Just click on the name of your community on top of one of the posts or on top of your feed if there happen to be members to confirm. You’ll then see a full list of members in that Community!

What is this about approving members to my group?

We believe in giving you control over your community. Also, you know far better than our admin team who is a professional in your area. Therefore new members are only admitted to HackPack and that Community when 3 current members approve them. Simply select Approve if you know the individual, Reject if it is a troll, fake account or someone who isn’t who they say they are. If you don’t know, click the X and you’ll skip them to find others!

Are there any community rules of conduct?

We want HackPack to be a positive environment with healthy and constructive collaboration. It is designed to keep out trolls and unprofessionalism. Here are some basic rules to help us keep it that way:

Code of Conduct

2. HackPack is about efficiency

3. HackPack is about respect and accountability
