There is more to social media than what we see everyday. If you scrape the surface, you will soon realise how the very mechanics of social platforms can help many industries to simplify their complex processes.
The recruitment industry is one that can particularly benefit from this, and Switch – the Tinder for job hunters – is a good example of how social mechanics can make things much simpler.

Switch is based around the concept that revolutionised online dating: “swipe right if you like, swipe left if you don’t” developed by Tinder.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
As a job seeker, you start by building your profile, translating your experience and qualifications into resume cards. You can then browse the database for relevant job opportunities based on the information you provide. When you find an offer you like, swipe right to express your interest for the position, and just wait to hear from the employer.
On the employer side, it is simple as well. Just post a job and wait for applicants.
Hiring managers can swipe through the resume cards, to find prospective candidates. If he decides to find out more about an applicant, a match is made and both parties can start talking via private chat.
It’s very Tinder-like and of course very simple. Social media should not jut be about the best-known networking platforms. There is so much more to social than that… right?
