This Tuesday, August 7th, Path.To launched it’s hiring software here in the Seattle area. Best described as eHarmony for jobs, Path.To’s algorithm matches interactive design, software engineering and IT professionals with the top job opportunities based on their culture and environment preferences, passions and skill sets.
The idea for Path.To was spurred by CEO Darren Bounds personal frustration with the recruiting process for IT jobs – a painful process for companies as well as for applicants that is horribly inefficient.
He knew that it’s often hard for employers to get a visual understanding of this type of work and understand what kind of skilled talent they are looking for from traditional recruiting processes. As for the professionals, they often get bombarded with recruiter requests for jobs that aren’t even that relevant for them.
Path.To has utilized the immense growth in technology – including the success of online advertising, Google search personalization and services like eHarmony – to revolutionize the job search process.
To make the whole experience of finding a job and hiring the right person easier, Path.To’s system analyzes the unique characteristics of each applicant, business and position to measure how well matched they are and provide both the candidate and company a “Path.To Score” that shows compatibility.
Those interested can sign up for a free business profile at http://path.to/employer. Basic listings start at $100 per job, and include three free candidate recommendations.
