HOW IT WORKS: Both Job Seekers and Employers create a profile — Job Seekers outline their experience, education, skills and work preferences, while Employers create a business profile and craft a detailed job post. On the back-end, both Seekers and Employers are tapping into the same keyword database to complete their profiles. This is how the talent matching happens in the back-end.
