Dating Site eHarmony to Apply Compatibility Formula to Jobs Market

Reuters (08/31/15)

Dating website eHarmony plans to launch a recruitment service, named Elevated Careers, in 2016, and is estimating the business will contribute about 60% of the company’s revenue by 2019. eHarmony co-founder Neil Clark Warren believes that the same compatibility factors used to match personalities on the dating website may work in the recruitment industry.

Surveys show that 70% of Americans are unhappy with their jobs, and according to Warren, “nobody has really matched personalities in terms of the applicant and the supervisor. [It’s] not something that LinkedIn or Monster do.” The market is therefore open for eHarmony’s transition into the employment industry. In fact, the market is so big that Warren expects the career market “to grow faster than [eHarmony’s] core product.”
