In today's ultra-competitive job market where hundreds if not thousands of applications are received for each open position, employers and employees alike seek ways to ensure the most compatible matches possible. Skills will only get you so far. Without a personality and culture fit, the marriage between employer and employee won't last. That's why the news thet eHarmony is getting into the recruiting business is surprising, but yet not entirely.
Reports that a hacker may have made off with 6.5 million passwords on LinkedIn are surfacing this morning. The story originated from a Russian forum, to which a user posted some encrypted passwords as part of a claim to have hacked into the site.

Like thousands of people around the country this month, my friend Gina re-activated her dating site profile this January.
“New year, new start!” she said, excitedly, puffing on a cigarette as we cruised the PCH with the top down, the cool winter breeze blowing through our hair. “I'm doing this new thing, too, called 'sober dating.'”
“Not drinking on dates?” I asked.
It is difficult to date more than one person at a time if a) you already have a fairly full schedule and b) people you date aren't just No, No, No. I mean, if every date you went on was a total bust, then you'd just rotate through, right? But if you're interested in the person you are seeing, then you're cultivating that relationship while going on other first dates, and this is kinda hurting my head.
So I've been back on eHarmony for a bit over a month now, and so far, this time around, it's pretty much Total Fail. Which is frustrating.
Last time, my eHarmony story was that I met exactly one guy, and it was the Hunky Actor, and we dated for like a year. I also had other guys in the queue - I actually canceled a date after I'd been out with the Hunky Actor twice. The time before that, I went on a handful of OK first dates before I met someone IRL.
This time, one month in: Nothin', Nada, Can you Hear The Crickets?
My best friend Sophie had a very Sex and the City-worthy week of dating in New York. She got broken up with on a text message, took home a bu sboy from work in a broken hearted shameful moment, and then drunk-dialed her ex-boyfriend from college. The next morning she calls me swearing off men again. So I suggest an alternative. “How about crossing your sex wires with some Internet wires and give the whole Internet dating a chance?” I suggest.
