Matching rules
around seniority

 

When matching jobs with resumes and vice-versa it is very important to correctly qualify the ‘seniority’ of each job and of each candidate.
This document outlines the rules – both for the analysis and for the matching – that BeWorkHappy applies
in assessing this seniority.

 

1. Analysis Rules

At the analysis stage of a document different rules apply depending on whether the document is recognized as a resume or as a job description.

We have 4 categories of seniority:

  1. Intern
  2. Junior
  3. Medior
  4. Senior

These rules apply for the analysis and the assessment of the document:


FOR A JOB DESCRIPTION

Default value is that all jobs are looking for a ‘Medior’ unless we find something to the contrary, eg: “Senior Software Developer”,
“We are looking for an intern …”, “Junior Plumber”


FOR A RESUME

Default value is that all candidates are ‘Medior’, unless the analysis of the resume shows differently.
These rules apply:

if higher management Senior
if Intern Intern
if < 3 years of working experience Junior
if ≥ 3 years of working experience Senior

2. Matching Rules

At the matching stage of the following rules apply in seniority matching:

Intern matches with
  Intern
Junior matches with
  Junior
  Medior
Medior matches with
  Junior
  Medior
  Senior
Senior matches with
  Medior
  Senior


Examples:

Someone looking for an internship will not match with a position for a Junior Bookkeper.
The resume of a candidate currently holding a “Junior Software Developer” position will be matched with a job asking for a
“Software Developer” (= medior).
