A matchmaking jobsite

SophiaDonaldson7 August 2015

A couple of months ago we told you about a new  job-searching app that works like Tinder. Well if that seemed a little shallow to you, perhaps you’ll be more interested in Hiremetrix. Hiremetrix takes more time and care over the matchmaking process; you build an online profile, which includes the results of their online assessment, and when companies are looking for new employees, you may turn up in their searches.

Many organisations already use LinkedIn to hunt for potential employees, so we know this kind of thing works.  Interestingly, your profile can include a short introductory video. As recent research suggests that job pitches are more effective when spoken, as opposed to written, the chance to literally have your voice heard by an employer at a very early stage may be invaluable.

See below for Hiremetrix’s description of how it all works.
