Matching in recruitment – how to identify suitable candidates and positions

When we hear "matching" today, we probably think of online dating. But just as singles seek their perfect half, employers are desperate for matching talents.

The skills shortage has become a reality, especially for companies that recruit a lot like engineering companies and IT services companies, which in addition to looking for the best candidates for their vacancies, wish to minimize the risk of losing them due to corporate poaching. Intelligent e-recruitment software, therefore, prioritize matching developed to support the recruiter’s needs.

How does matching work? 

Matching tools have become complex systems which master many functions and commands. Above all, they are both simple and intuitive to use. Unatrix created its matching exactly on this basis, and it is today considered one of the best in its industry.

The heart of the system is a structured skills repository which also includes synonyms and tree structures with sub-categories. A whole series of qualifications and skills are included in the reference system aimed at facilitating a matching between needs (internal or clients) and profiles (applicants, employees, interns, freelancers, etc.). The repository in question can also be populated during use, without an administrator. This is how the system “learns” over time the language and user requirements.

One function – three components

Unatrix offers bilateral matching. It offers three basic functionalities that complement each other. These are abbreviated by the initials CoMaSc :

  • Matching – The match between the qualifications sought in a need and the skills of a profile is done by comparing the matches. If a candidate has for example eight of the ten skills sought, the system will calculate a matching of 80%.
  • Scoring – uses the different weightings of the qualifications sought in the needs and the skills available in a profile. Thus the profiles with the highest ratings are displayed first in the list, the others follow in decreasing order.
  • Covering – It concludes whether a profile is suitable for a position that is not listed. Very useful for recruiting firms and engineering companies, who want to know what positions can be offered to a particular candidate.

Job search according to geographic mobility

An essential aspect of the filling of jobs today is professional mobility. IT services companies often operate in several regions of a country or even internationally; it is, therefore, important to consider the geographical wishes of the candidates on this subject. With Unatrix, it is very easy to select and combine countries, regions, and cities concerning the mobility of the candidate thanks to the geographical database present in the system.
