Our team is thrilled to announce the launch of CakeResume Meet, the new go-to networking platform where professionals connect and collaborate.

Background Story: How We Came Up with The Idea

In today's competitive job market, networking is not just a random buzzword but more like a necessity. Recent statistics show that nearly 40% of job seekers found their career opportunities through networking. This underscores the importance of cultivating a robust professional network for both job opportunities and career advancement.

But why is building a network often challenging? Various factors, such as your upbringing, educational background, culture, or workplace environment, can significantly influence your networking opportunities. LinkedIn recently reported that while 79% of professionals recognize the importance of networking for career progression, only 48% maintain regular contact with their network. The leading cause? A reported 49% of professionals cited a lack of time as the primary reason. Additionally, other factors such as reluctance to talk to strangers, lack of confidence, and fear of being seen as pushy can also hinder networking efforts. Moreover, since the pandemic happened in 2020, networking has become even more challenging. Before COVID-19, many professionals relied on local networking events to expand their connections. However, post-pandemic, over 77% of event planners have struggled to attract attendees to in-person networking events. Effective networking goes beyond mere connections; it's about cultivating genuine relationships and leveraging them for career advancement.

Realizing these challenges and the growing demand for innovative networking solution, our team at CakeResume is excited to release CakeResume Meet—a user-friendly platform created to facilitate seamless connections among professionals of all backgrounds.
