eHarmony has been working on the career-matching site for more than two years now. Dr Neil Clark Warren is an eHarmony founder and CEO. “We want to bring companies candidates that have been fully vetted,” he said.

According to eHarmony’s website 438 people get married every day as a result of eHarmony’s compatibility matching.

Now eHarmony is turning its sights on matching people with jobs, and companies with applicants. Elevated Careers states it intends to use proven technology to bring employers the most compatible candidates, matched on skills, company culture and personality.

In 2014, Dan Erickson, director of special projects and general manager of Elevated Careers said that instead of sending companies thousands of resumes, they want to provide a daily list of candidates who match with a company. This includes not just with the jobs and skills area, but with company culture, work values and knowledge.

Elevated Careers will pair applicants and jobs based not just on skills and qualifications but also cultural fit and the personality traits of the applicants’ supervisor and potential closest co-workers.
