Switch: The Tinder of Job Hunting

If your relationship was going belly up, would you stick around hoping it gets any better or take a look around the showroom before you break it off for good? The latter, of course! You deserve better! With blessings from the Washington Post and Business Insider, NYC startup app Switch, hailed as the Tinder of job-hunting, uses a unique approach to help users find the perfect employment. The user begins by filling out an anonymous profile, which prohibits employers from the user’s current company to see their profile. After registering, the application couldn’t be simpler: swipe right if you like what you see, swipe left if you don’t. Much like Tinder, neither the user nor the employer will be notified unless the decision is mutual. And if you’re not finding what you’re looking for right away, keep looking! Switch’s innovative “data-driven job matching” is designed to “learn” and calibrate its search engine to find the user’s most suitable job possible.

“We look at the actual selections you’re making and build a pattern of your preferences.” explained founder Yarden Tadmor in an interview with the Washington Post.

With web giants like Facebook, Ebay, Soundcloud and Dropbox already employing Switch users, it’s no question that Switch could be the simplest way for New Yorkers to find a new job in 2015. And if you don’t live in the Big Apple, don’t fret! Switch plans to expand this year to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin and Washington D.C.
