When and How did this idea start?

It all started with the Meetup - Finding a Job in Australia, which had it's first event in July, 2017. Every month, the topics covered were around finding a job in Australia. The speakers at the events spoke about, resumes, interviews, culture, job searching tips, trends, role of recruiters, and many such associated topics. The events grew bigger and bigger each time and the founder of this meetup, Gaurav Wadekar, realized the need for a Career Network. The questions asked were not only related to finding jobs, but also to keeping jobs, to climbing ladders, to change careers, self fulfillment and the works. The career network is one of a kind platform, where people would physically meet and create long lasting bonds in order to assist each other, using technology as an enabler on the way.
