Top Recruitment Agencies See Matchmaking as a Potential Game Changer

The online job market already involves a high level of social networking that works by using talent and professional background to find jobs for job seekers as well as identifying talented candidates for employers. It is matchmaking on a professional level enabled by the growth of social media.

However the sheer volume of people reached, who may think their skills match an online job posting means that employers sometimes have an even harder task sifting through applicants to make that elusive match. In the online job world the number of applicants is limitless. So employers are finding the skills of top recruitment agencies ever more valuable.

All top recruitment agencies aim to make genuine employer and employee matches rather than scanning a CV to look for an easy match between candidate experience and the job vacancy. It is probably no surprise therefore that matchmaking techniques used by internet dating sites are to be employed in the online job search market.

How Matchmaking Works

The matchmaking technique used to connect couples using algorithms and questionnaires will be applied to candidates and jobs. The technique will match candidate and company compatibility by skills and background, personality and culture.

Potential matchmaking pitfalls

Some candidates may feel that these techniques reduce their ability to connect on a personal level, where a one to one with a recruiter allows their personality to shine through. Recruitment agencies also emphasise the need to meet guidelines on employee selection procedures and employment law prohibiting discrimination on grounds of race, colour, religion, sex and national origin.

The Importance of Matchmaking in Job Recruitment

PA recruitment agencies in London, like RMS Recruitment, ensure that they match the best qualified candidate to the most relevant company which will progress their career. The career becomes one of the key relationships in an individual’s life. In fact RMS Recruitment has been using personality matching to make that “marriage in the office” successful since its inception. Tessa Meadows-Smith says "The hardest skill in secretarial recruitment is finding the right “fit” between PA and boss. RMS concentrates on matching the chemistry between people. To do this we need to know our candidates and our clients on a different level."
