EHarmony is taking matchmaking to a new level.

The dating website that boasts about the number of marriages it has helped set up is now helping set up jobs too.

It recently announced the launch of its own jobs site, Elevated Careers. The site is currently in beta mode.

According to a news release, the site aims to bring “deeper levels of compatibility between job seekers and companies to address a broken recruitment model that costs U.S. businesses an estimated $11 billion per year in regrettable turnover costs.”

It continues:

Based on the scientific principles that have powered eHarmony, Elevated Careers matches job seekers with career opportunities based on multiple layers of compatibility to more accurately place the right candidate in the right job at the right company.

Elevated Careers matches job seekers and jobs based on three types of compatibility:

  • Skills
  • Culture
  • Personality

Elevated Careers was developed in partnership with Simply Hired, which will bring about 2.5 million job postings to the site each day.

Reuters reports that eHarmony has also already signed on for six-month trials with at least two large employers, AT&T and American Airlines.

Dan Erickson, director of special projects at eHarmony, tells Reuters:

“Our goal is to have 10 to 20 of those foundational partners on board to help us continue to refine the technology and pricing.”
