Match.com’s summer intern, Silvia, will be blogging weekly about her experiences working at Match and revealing the behind the scenes of the world’s largest dating site.
Working for the world’s largest dating site definitely has its perks but at the end of the day, our goal is to help our members meet others.
Being a recent college grad, the world of online dating was a place I had never ventured to. I was, I admit, a bit skeptical of how creating an online dating profile would facilitate a love connection. However after working at Match.com, my beliefs have changed –online dating has become a huge passion of mine!
The success our members have had is amazing! Success stories come to us from all different channels and mediums. We get shout-outs on Twitter, Facebook, through emails, on our success site and of course the traditional snail mail. It gives me a sense of fulfillment when I see the wide variety of people thanking us for changing their lives. Receiving those pictures and announcements of Match.com couples getting engaged, married, or having babies is reassuring that I have one of the best jobs in the world! Each of us play a supporting role in finding life-long happiness for our members and honestly, what is better than that?
One of my favorite tweets to @Match!
In the PR and Marketing departments, we often speak to our customers and hear of success more often than some in other departments at Match. We are so fortunate to have such exposure to these stories that we wanted to ensure the rest of the company knew how they were changing peoples’ lives just as equally. We have recently installed a “Success Wall” at our global headquarters in Dallas as well as in our San Francisco and L.A. offices to display all the great news we get from our successful users to all of our employees!
