Dating sites, start trumpeting the news: it turns out those cyber-fueled marriages are a bit happier and more durable than those begun via less electronic means.
Those, at least, are among the findings of a team of academics led by University of Chicago psychologist John T.
That modern-day matchmaker, the Internet—both through its traditional channels and the explosion of online dating sites—is where a third of recently-married American couples first started sparking.
Elevated Careers will use predictive algorithms and dozens of variables based on features within resumes and profiles and the firm’s job listings and corporate culture to find a professional match.
“The methodology is the same,” said Steve Carter, vice president for matching at e Harmony.
Dan Erickson, director of special projects at Elevated Careers by e Harmony, said it will take job recruiting to the same level, matching compatibility by skills and background, personality and culture.
“We are trying to take that matching compatibility expertise that e Harmony has developed in the online dating world and bringing that to careers,” he said.
