A month after the official launch of eHarmony’s job service, its main talisman has been promoted to VP.
Dan Erickson was responsible for spearheading the development of the company’s job matchmaking platform, Elevated Careers.
Erickson, who built the platform based around eHarmony founder & CEO Dr. Neil Clark Warren’s initial vision, is now the VP of Elevated Careers.
Speaking about his work on the product, which launched at the start of last month, Warren said: “Dan understood that eHarmony’s compatibility expertise could uniquely address a recruitment model that has left a reported 70 percent of employees unhappy in their jobs.
“In addition, we knew that if we could create compatible matches in the workplace, it could have a profound impact on relationships in homes all over the country. Dan was instrumental in this process from beginning to launch and we are pleased to announce his promotion.”
The service is based on the same research-based matching process that powers eHarmony.
Its main objective & USP that differentiates it from other job-finding services is all about matching a potential employee’s personality and values with a company’s culture.
The Elevated Careers algorithm takes into account 24 factors around culture, personality & values, while focusing on three main areas in order to match job seekers with a company & job.
The first is an employee’s skills & job background, the second is an individual’s “core work values” and how they match with a company’s culture, and the last is the personality of a job seeker and how they might match with a hiring manager.
The latter even uses eight factors taken from the eHarmony relationship matching system.
Speaking about Elevated Careers, Erickson said: “Only eHarmony could create a platform that matches job seekers and hiring organizations by considering key factors that would predict a successful, long term workplace relationship.
“Elevated Careers moves beyond matching search terms and resumes into compatibility matching. It’s a next-generation platform for the career industry and I’m so pleased to be a part of it.”
Prior to joining eHarmony, Erickson had twenty years of experience in business development and marketing working for companies like Tom’s of Maine, Concordia Partners, and Brand Partners Group, while also working as the Director of Marketing at JobsinTheUS.com.
