Matchmaking company eHarmony's latest business venture is a data-driven job board that connects job seekers with employers who are looking to hire new staff. Rejecting a traditional application and resume review model, this service ensures staff and employers are compatible by following a similar model to eHarmony's highly successful romantic database.

Similar to connecting potential couples based on compatibility, eHarmony's Elevated job board uses big data and web-based testing modules to determine whether users are right for a particular job that they are interested in.

For example, Elevated tests users' skills while examining their personality to determine whether they are not only qualified for certain job openings by also a cultural fit that employers can identify with. This data-driven recruitment strategy saves both job seekers and employers time while ensuring that new hires are the right fit for specific organizations.
