Matching people to optimal careers, professional development, and jobs by using behavioral assessments, surveys, and support.

“We’re in the worst talent shortage since 2007,” according to Inc. magazine. U.S. businesses are struggling to find the right talent, and positions are sitting unfilled. Deloitte estimates that the skills gap will cost the United States $2.5 trillion over the next decade. There is a 19 percent and growing gap between middle-skill positions and the people available to fill those openings. A way to effectively address this need is to transform our hiring, education, and workforce markets to focus on competencies.

PAIRIN matches individuals to optimal careers, professional development, and jobs with their behavioral science-based SaaS (software-as-a-service) products. PAIRIN’s My Journey platform uses their behavioral assessment and a needs and desires survey to personalize career, education, and development recommendations for each individual based on their unique abilities, situation, and life stage. My Journey also facilitates direct connections to state agency resources, tools, and support services for seamless navigation and task management.
