The need for double dating arose from the transition from an older calendar to a newer one.For example, in "10/21 February 1750/51", the dual day of the month is due to the leap year correction of the Julian calendar by the Gregorian calendar, and the dual year is due to some countries beginning their numbered year on 1 January while others were still using another date."Old Style" (OS) and "New Style" (NS) are sometimes added to dates to identify which date corresponds to an OS calendar that was used prior to a NS calendar.

Like Tinder, Switch allows you to quickly browse through available job listings.
You swipe right on jobs you’re interested in and left on jobs you want to pass on.
Hiring managers do the same on candidate profiles and when there’s a match both users are notified.
Because it’s so easy to browse and candidate names are anonymized, the app caters well to people who are not actively seeking a new job, but may be open to the right opportunity if it presented itself.
