How the Process Works

A fair and efficient mechanism
for processing offers

A fair and efficient mechanism for processing offers

1

Applicants and recruiters register to participate in the Match Placement Process.


2

Applicants apply for positions and recruiters evaluate the applicants. Recruiters can use the same application, evaluation, and interview processes as they have in the past, or they can leverage NMS's online tools to facilitate the process.


3

After all evaluations are complete, each applicant submits to the matching service a list of desired positions in numerical order of preference (first choice, second choice, etc.). Similarly, each recruiter submits to the matching service a list of desirable applicants, in preference order. No direct offers of admission are made by recruiters.


4

The Match Placement Process takes the preference lists submitted by applicants and recruiters and applies a fair, transparent, and unbiased algorithm to place applicants into positions. The algorithm ensures that both applicants and recruiters receive the best placements possible.

National Matching Services has implemented Match Placement Processes in a wide variety of professional and competitive recruitment situations, including: residency and internship training, entry-level jobs, rotational jobs, student exchange, and school admissions. See some of our clients.
