Australians now have access to a web service that touts itself as the Tinder of the job marketplace. LikeaJob is a website that connects job hunters to potential employers via a "like" system that is similar to the popular dating app.
The Tinder formula is gradually gaining traction in the business market. Last month, we saw Forbes magazine over in the US launching a social networking app to connect young business leaders. Now LikeaJob has come in to hook up job seekers and would-be employers.
LikeaJob lets job hunters create their own profiles with the usual resume information for free. Meanwhile, prospective employers can post job ads for a small fee. Both parties can use LikeaJob's algorithm to find matches and if an employer and potential employee "like" each other, they will be notified by email. Employers can then use pre-purchased credits to unlock the full profile and contact details of the matched job seekers.
The video below provides more details on the whole process:
Likeajob currently has over 6500 registered users. You can find out more about the service over at the LikaJob website.
