Networking/recruiting events

Personally, I never found networking/recruiting events very useful, especially those requiring registration fees.
It is OK to go to parties to have fun and increase the chance of random encounters, but networking by itself is a quite shallow goal.
All my best and deepest connections and recruits are established via other means, mostly shared interests.

It is much better to spend time and efforts to motivate others to find us, which in turn can help networking and recruiting.

I am not the only one saying these; see also here and here.
