Online dating site eHarmony may be best known for helping people find their perfect mate but, by the end of this year, it also intends to help employers find the perfect employee. eHarmony is launching an online job-matching site that will match supervisors with jobseekers.

“It’s going to be about trying to find out the culture and the personalities of the people in the job situation plus the personality of the person who’s the applicant and match them together the same way we do for marriage,” said Neil Clark Warren, founder and CEO of eHarmony, based in Santa Monica, Calif.

The site will be launching first in the United States and will expand into other countries, including Canada, said Warren. While details around pricing have yet to be worked out, there would be a charge for both jobseekers and employers, he said.
