Your Job

The Core Matching team’s mission is to enable matches between jobseekers and jobs, leading to interviews and hires, with the world’s highest-quality job recommendations.

We focus on innovating on the way people get jobs and employers hire people. What if employers can locate qualified candidates within a few hours of job posting and start conversations with them?
