LA BUSINESS JOURNAL – Apr 11 – Both Tinder and eHarmony are moving into the HR industry. eHarmony launched Elevated Careers on April 1, a job site that uses algorithms to connect job candidates with companies by matching skills, personality, and company culture. Last month, Tinder acquired contact management app Humin, which could help CEO Sean Rad use Tinder’s swipe feature for a networking app. Executives at online recruitment companies said eHarmony and Tinder might struggle to break into an industry crowded with competition. Dozens of online recruitment startups are launched each year, yet many of those companies are short-lived. Rad has talked for years of building a professional networking app. Tinder updated its app in November to allow users to include education and job info on their profiles. eHarmony has been working on Elevated Careers for about two and a half years. It is still working out pricing, but will likely charge companies $2,5K – $5K a year. The site is free for job seekers though premium features might be added later.
