Jobr Pulls LinkedIn Info for Job-Matching App


Another Tinder-aping job-matching app has been released, called Jobr.

Following on the heels of Emjoyment — which was released in March — Jobr wants to streamline a cumbersome process by helping recruiters and jobseekers find each other.

You sign in via LinkedIn and the app pulls information such as job history, skills and expertise, to build your Jobr profile.

From here, jobs pop up like potential partners, and you swipe right for those you are interested in, and left for those you aren’t.

Jobr say their matching algorithms will learn from these swipes over time to suggest more suitable positions.

These vacancies are advertised by employers, who list a brief summary of the company, position, and other important details.

They also swipe through candidates, and if both parties swipe right, the two can chat within the app.

Jobr includes referral incentives for users of the app — you get $1,000 if you send a job to a friend, by swiping down, and they end up taking the position.

The app is in competition with Emjoyment, which launched in March, and has an almost identical Tinder-inspired functionality.

Last week, eHarmony founder and CEO Neil Clark Warren appeared on Fox Business, where he said their long-awaited job matching service will launch later this year.
