Employment Matchmaking

Milennials turn to apps to streamline the job hunting process

Implications - The employment landscape is changing drastically as technology continues to evolve. Younger job seekers have been turning to mobile apps to connect or "match" them with opportunities and employers, much like a dating app would match them with potential mates. The app interface not only streamlines the job hunting process, it also evens the playing field by emphasizing the mutually beneficial nature of the employer-employee relationship.
