Upgraded our Job Matching Algorithm with This Week’s Changes – Aug 19

Hi, Kalibrr Clients!¬†ūüĎč

I hope you’re enjoying the holidays. This week we released a huge improvement to our matching algorithm, woohoo! Imagine your job post going straight into your target candidate’s e-mail, all powered by our platform. This already happens, but now¬†it’s targeted to the right eyeballs.

We upgraded our matching algorithm to tap into the power of our jobseeker network.

Our data science team added¬†a particular model that uses the power of our¬†jobseeker network.¬†Now we recommend a job to a candidate if that job was reviewed¬†by people with a similar educational background as the candidate. So if Mara¬†and Clara¬†have similar educational backgrounds, we’ll send Clara job recommendations from¬†the jobs that Mara likes.

We further tap into this¬†jobseeker network¬†by recommending jobs to a candidate if that job was looked at by other candidates¬†with similar work positions, dream jobs, or¬†skills set. ¬†This is all done automatically and none of our candidates are identified — it’s all anonymous!

You can increase your job post exposure by taking advantage of this job matching upgrade.

Make sure your job post details are complete and well-detailed so that it is exposed to more¬†candidates that fit your job’s profile. Here’s what you can do:

  • Have a well-defined job post title; and
  • Identify 5 major skills required for your job.

A bare or incomplete¬†job post won’t be seen by your target candidates. You won’t be getting a lot of candidates that way!

We are positive that these improvements will send more Kalibrr candidates to your job posts.

Happy Recruiting!

Other Changes

Aug 19 2015

  • We placed¬†the mobile verification code field on the modal that pops out when you try to post a job so that you won’t have to navigate to your account settings to do so. It does it right on the page.
  • We’ve limited the number of skills you can add to a job post to 5. This should improve our matching algorithm as you are encouraged to highlight the¬†top skills needed for that job.
  • Fixed a bug where the job board page would not¬†display¬†properly on mobile.
  • Fixed an issue with¬†a¬†candidate’s country and city not showing even if the data was there.
