Matching rules
around Work Class

 

When matching jobs with resumes and vice-versa it is very important to correctly
qualify the ‘work class’ of each job and of each candidate, i.e. blue-collar, worker, management ...
This document outlines the rules – both for the analysis and for the matching – that BeWorkHappy
applies in assessing the work class.

 

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 Work Class:

  1. Blue-collar worker – example: iron bender
  2. White-collar worker – example: accountant
  3. Lower management – example: marketing manager
  4. Higher management – examples: CEO, Director

Work Class is calculated based on the ‘most recent’ job that is mentioned in the working experience part of the resume
