Happy Valentine’s Day! Yesterday and the day before we profiled companies that not only offer great entry-level job opportunities, but also can help you with last-minute preparations for making today (or any day) special for someone you love. Today we’re going to talk about a company that has something to offer for those of you who are looking for someone to love. Speaking of which, we want your love, so become a Facebook Fan, subscribe through RSS, or join our e-mail list. You’ll get great information about entry-level careers, and we’ll get a self-esteem boost. Everybody wins.
A lot of people say that job searching is like dating. That metaphor has been played out, and we’re not going to write an article on How to Use Google to Find a Girlfriend. We are going to talk about how you can use your surplus of Valentine’s Day love to find a job or a date at eHarmony, since randomly poking people you think are cute on Facebook isn’t going to get you a date (nor will doing the equivalent on LinkedIn get you a job). eHarmony is a dating site that matches people based on a scientific approach to compatibility. We’ve never used it, but the couples on their commercials seem pretty darned happy; moreover, on average, 90 people get married from eHarmony every day. With so much success, there has been an upcropping of sites that claim to be “the eHarmony of jobs,” but we’re pretty skeptical of this approach. If most companies can’t even put together good job descriptions, how can they be expected to write an organizational profile that will yield accurate results when put into a compatibility algorithm? You’re better off reading One Day, One Job, doing your own research, and determining organizational fit yourself.
eHarmony’s careers site is clear and simple, but their job listings are a little on the light side. We’d expect a lot more information about individual jobs from a company that is all about matching and compatibility. They do partially redeem themselves with a page that claims to be the Top 10 Reasons to Work for eHarmony but actually consists of about 20 testimonials from eHarmony employees. This is definitely helpful, but we want more from a company that is writing about How to Have Better Work-Life Balance on their research blog.
eHarmony has quite a few jobs that require little or no prior work experience. These positions have varying levels of entry-levelness, but there are certainly new college grads who would be appropriate for each. eHarmony’s entry-level openings include: Online Marketing Specialist, User Interaction (UI) Designer / Usability Specialist, Web Designer, QA Engineer, and Account Services Coordinator. You can also look at their full listing of job openings.
Whether you are looking for your first job or your first love, eHarmony has a lot to offer. Even if you’re just interested in the study of compatibility, the science behind eHarmony should fascinate you. Now go do some research, so that next year you’ll love your job so much that you ask it to be your Valentine.
Note: On April 24th we revisited entry-level jobs at eHarmony.
