"Sandra, many companies believe that a side benefit of these ATS systems is the ability to more easily dodge a fee that is due a recruiter. Years ago, when I owned a staffing company, a Fortune 500 firm's HR Rep tried to use that same line with…"

"Reading the initial post and first comments, what stands out is the feeling about the complexity and poor search functionalities of these ATSs. As in all software applications, web or desktop, the most difficult thing to achieve is…"

"Most interesting topic and I have to say, I agree. When I started my own recruiting firm, I thought, "I have to have an ATS." So, I got one. I hardly ever use it! It does, like someone in a previous post mentioned, takes away so much time…"

"The only thing i see an ATS system doing effectively is giving internals a way to say that they already have a candidate on file that they have not talked with in over a year."

Michael Johnson commented on Michael Ruskin's blog post 'ATS AND TODAY'S RECRUITERS'
"Interesting observation and I agree with Eli in that it seems to me that ATS is driven out of compliance issues (HR) not recruiting efficiency. That's why so many companies are now moving to a CRM on the front end of their ATS. ATS is for…"

"Mike, thanks for giving a preview into your journey, I agree it is a cumbersome process. I believe the whole ATS thing was designed to help provide some sort of management utility to recruiters. ATS's also have an integration capability with an…"

ATS AND TODAY'S RECRUITERS

Posted on September 27, 2010 at 8:31pm 18 Comments

I've been a successful technical recruiter for 30+ years. Now that I'm in the twilight of my career I look back on my career and I am so glad I'm almost at the finishline. For the past 10 years I feel more like an admistratrive assistant, rather than a professional recruiter. For those of you who don't remember. Back in the old days you spent most of your time sourcing and recruiting and interfacing directly with the Hiring Managers. You didn't spend half your day tracking internal…

Hi,

I do some placing of people in the travel field for 7 years.
I am trying different industries I need new job openings.
I call first and than follow it up with a email If I have the email.
I do not get calls back and return email reply.
It seems I am spinning my wheels the wrong way.
The old way was cold calling by phone, now with phone mail no one calls me back.

How do you get new clients?
I am a member of facebook, linkedin, myspace, twitter.
I have written people on the social webs and get no response.

I enjoy placing people in jobs.
I am not who sees this here.
I post blogs and get no one answering them. I do not think answering here works. I am not sure.
