It’s Like Tinder But for the Job Hunt

Do you use Tinder? It’s the swipe-left, swipe-right dating app that simplifies the overwhelming process into a quick yes-no situation. If one party swipes yes and the other party swipes no, a match will not be made. But if both swipe yes, the parties are e-introduced. A new app called Jobr hopes to do just that — but this time for jobs. Imagine a recruiter on one end and talent on the other. Kind of genius, right?

Jobr’s tagline is “Connecting talented individuals with the job they never knew was waiting.” After all, sometimes you might not know what’s best for you. Or you might find what you’re looking for in the least expected place. (The parallels between job searching and dating suddenly are very clear, right? Read our post discussing how job searching is like dating if you disagree.) On top of that, searching online for open positions can be exhausting. And application after application — just like date after date — is time consuming.

To use Jobr, just connect your LinkedIn profile to the app. A profile will be created with your most proficient skills and your job history. Each open position also has a profile page outlining job requirements and the qualifications needed for success. Swipe left or right whether you’re interested or not. If you are, hopefully a recruiter is interested to.

P.S. If you know of a friend who’d be a good fit for a position, share the listing with them. If they get hired, you’ll score $1,000 from Jobr. Not bad.
