ATLANTAJan. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — In its effort to continually innovate how dental professionals connect and create teams that excel, DentalPost, the dental industry’s premier online and mobile job board, announces today it has launched a new Candidate Matching feature for its members. A first of its kind for the industry, the system uses sophisticated algorithms to match job seekers’ skills and culture preferences with relevant job openings.

Using the Candidate Matching feature, dental offices can input job requirements, information about the office’s culture, use of technology, values and more in order to find the best candidate for the open position. Candidates are matched based on skill set as well as work environment preferences, behavior style, personality traits and other attributes. The algorithm will score and rank each resume against the employer’s specific criteria, significantly narrowing down the list of qualified candidates and shaving many hours off the hiring process. Additionally, members get ongoing updates of new candidates that may be a match for their office.

“Our goal has always been to help dental professionals be more effective and efficient. Using data to hire better is critical to the long-term effectiveness of the industry. If your office culture is healthy, it means happier teams and a more successful bottom line,” says Tonya Lanthier, founder and CEO of DentalPost.  “Even though using our standard job board has worked well for our members, it requires a lot of mental calculations, note taking and reading, which, with up to 1,000 resumes to review, can become overwhelming for the employer. Our new Candidate Matching feature eliminates this ‘needle in a haystack’ search and allows employers to hire for culture, as well as for skills, saving time and ensuring a longer-term, more effective employee.”

Members can take advantage of the DentalPost Candidate Matching feature for less than $360 per use.  For more information visitwww.dentalpost.net.
