DESIGN FOR AN ACADEMIC MATCHING SERVICE.
ARNSTEIN, GEORGE E.
A SYSTEM, MANPOWER, AND TALENT CLEARINGHOUSE (MATCH), IS PROPOSED AS A SINGLE MECHANISM FOR BRINGING TOGETHER EMPLOYERS AND WOULD-BE EMPLOYEES IN HIGHER EDUCATION. THIS SYSTEM WOULD CONSIST OF A LIST OF VACANCIES AND THEIR DESCRIPTORS, A LIST OF CANDIDATES AND THEIR QUALIFICATIONS, AND A LINKAGE TO UNITE THEM. INITIALLY, THE LINKAGE WOULD CONSIST OF A PERIODICAL BULLETIN OF ACADEMIC VACANCIES WHICH WOULD EVENTUALLY BE CONVERTED TO A COMPUTERIZED SYSTEM. THIS SYSTEM OF MATCHING JOBS TO MEN AND MEN TO JOBS WOULD HAVE MANY ADVANTAGES OVER THE PRESENT DECENTRALIZED METHOD. IT WOULD, FOR EXAMPLE, PERMIT OBJECTIVE MATCHING WHILE STILL ALLOWING FINAL DECISIONS TO BE MADE BY THE INDIVIDUALS INVOLVED. IT IS PROPOSED THAT MATCH BE FINANCED WITH FEDERAL FUNDS. DESIRED CHARACTERISTICS INCLUDE COMPREHENSIVENESS, OPENNESS, FINANCIAL SECURITY AND STABILITY, CONFIDENCE-ENGENDERING SUPPORT, FLEXIBILITY, NONEVALUATIVENESS, AND A COMPUTER BASIS.
