eHarmony entering the HR recruiting space YES or NO?

MBAinteract was a failed start up to match employers with people holding a MBA and looking for a new job (5 years ago).

eHarmony moving from dating to job matches ?

I agree that  for matching job seekers with employers, the best predictor of job performance is always: personality!!! 

The Wall Street Journal had published an interesting article about Xerox
"When looking for workers to staff its call centers, Xerox Corp. used to pay lots of attention to applicants who had done the job before. Then, a computer program told the printer and outsourcing company that experience doesn't matter.

The software said that what does matter in a good call-center worker—one who won't quit before the company recoups its USD5,000 investment in training—is personality. "

But the Big Five normative personality test is ......... OBSOLETE!

Online Dating sites have very big databases, in the range of 20,000,000 (twenty million) profiles,  the BIG Five model or the HEXACO model are not enough for predictive purposes. That is why I suggest the 16PF5 test.
