WayUp: same road as ElevatedCareers? Overpromises first?

WayUp gets USD18.5 million more to help college grads find jobs

February 2016 eHarmony launched ElevatedCareers, for match job seekers with employers but it only overpromised, delivered job matches as a machine gun shooting flowers (good for nothing, useless).
Then closed.

The Wall Street Journal had published an interesting article about Xerox last September 2012.
"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."
For matching job seekers with employers, the best predictor of job performance is always: personality!!!
