Matching in Arithon

Matching is the first step in the selections process. There are many facilities in Arithon that can match vacancies with candidates. From the different screens in Arithon, you are able to

  • match a candidate to all vacancies, which returns the vacancies in order of suitability (candidate screen) - Intelligent Matching
  • match a candidate to a specific vacancy (candidate screen)
  • match a vacancy to a candidate list (vacancies screen) - Intelligent Matching
Arithon's Intelligent Matching compares the skills and experience outlined in the vacancy with those listed in the candidate records. Additionally, it uses the orange fields (called matching fields) to refine the results. Arithon will "score" the results according to how much the records match each other.

The matching fields are as follows:

Candidate StatusStatus
Desired LocationLocation
Desired Salary LowSalary - From
Desired Salary HighSalary - To
WPM (if showing)WPM
Dicta (if showing)Dicta

Just a few more notes:

  1. If you are matching from the candidate screen - it will only show jobs that are "Open". Conversely, if you are matching from the vacancies screen, it will only short list candidates that are "Available" or "New Record".
  2. There is a grey scale when it compares the salaries - it takes 10% of the top and low salary values.
  3. The matching of the location fields is basic as Arithon does not have any geographical intelligence. The locations have to be identical in order for them to be matched. For example Kensington will not match to London, only to Kensington.
  4. Matching from the vacancies screen allows you to apply weightings to the various fields. So, especially with the locations, some people will decrease its weighting - i.e. not make it that important when it comes to short-listing your candidates. By moving the slider to the right you are making that particular field more important, and less important if you move it to the left. For example, if you move the slider for "Record Age" to the right, you will rank newer candidates in the system higher than older candidates.
  5. When matching from the vacancy screen, candidates that have a bit more skill experience than stated in the vacancies will be scored higher.
