Changing Applicant Tracking System Vendors

Many of the popular applicant tracking system (ATS) vendors continue to strengthen their client retention rates. Hirebridge currently boasts a better than 98% retention rate. However, there are a number of users looking to switch to a different ATS for a variety of reasons. Below are highlights of the biggest factors I’ve found for changing to a different ATS.


The pricing of ATSs has become one of the largest areas of competition for vendors. Many web based (SaaS model)… Continue

Amex's ConneXion with Social Networking

Flying high with social networking (3 pages)

I'm wondering if within a company that uses social networking platforms recruiting and marketing, these two groups ever get together to collaborate, or are they mutually exclusive efforts? Are silos forever???

DON'T CALL (Me Names)

Slightly more than a scant two years ago one of those lively "discussions" (75 replies) broke out over on ERE about the effectiveness of cold calling into companies. The original proposition asked for advice/thoughts from the group about the legality of calling into… Continue

Digging Into v1.23


(Oct 31, 2008) My trip to India was no less than a complete mental enema. Although the image is a bit harsh, my cherished assumptions were challenged again and again. On my return, the simplest of Western luxuries seem like overabundance.

I don't know why, but I have this recurring fantasy that moments of transformation are supposed to be fun. That the correct response to deep insight and breakthrough thinking is joy. That letting go of the old and shepherding in the…

The Goal posts change once more

We talk a lot in my organisation about the need for flexibility and adaptability, the old ability to roll with the punches so to speak, whilst still mananging to achieve something of real value. Man am I living that this year...

I blogged earlier this year about my company doubting whether or not my team and i could deliver what they wanted us to. I am proud to say now that we did and more! To the point where we ended up having potentially more people then we really needed. Yay us...? Then… Continue

An old dog is learning new tricks - maybe

There is a point in a life that learning new tricks is beyond physical capabilities or mental comprehension. However, I am finding that with the advent in the wealth of social media sites an old dog like me has a great chance of learning new tricks.

For any old folk who can remember party lines, the internet can be very intimidating. Most people my age are just getting rid of their rolodexes and discovering emails. My brother sent me a message recently telling me that he is going to… Continue

Why not me?

I hear that a lot from some of the clients I work with and I try and I try and tell them that they are asking the wrong questions. Here is my view on this topic:

-No person will ever be more then they think about themselves

-You are what you think and not what you do (Every time)

-We may not believe it, but we are exactly where we should be (Because that was the programmed state we are in until we change it)

-A client was passed over for promotion and… Continue

Unprofessional to want to be like Slouch

Or so someone emailed me - undoubtedly without understanding our community; didn't even catch the drift that I was having some RBC fun. So I replaced my Slouch picture with something more professional. Hope you like it!

Completely Missing the Point (China)

It has been around for decades, and is conducted using a well-defined and validated methodology.

So It’s such a pity that the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey (MEOS) survey completely misses the point for China.

The study is infused with cautious optimism, and everything is ‘positive’ or at least ’steady’. Phrases like ‘considerable year-over-year improvement’ are used to create the… Continue

Review: Google's HTC Dream phone -- That's it?

By Bonnie Cha and Nicole Lee

(CNET) -- It's been a little more than a year since Google Android was announced and rumors of a little device called the HTC Dream started to leak onto the Web.

The G1 does not support stereo Bluetooth, Microsoft Exchange, or video recording.

We think it's fair to say that the Dream stirred up as much anticipation and hype as the Apple iPhone, not only because it would be the first smartphone to run Google's mobile… Continue

Putting Facebook tand Twitter to work

By Steven Mollman


BANGKOK, Thailand (CNN) -- "Why can't I do this at home?"

Bringing Skype to the workplace is just one way companies are harnessing tech that has previously been used just for fun.

Employees in the office used to ponder this question about corporate technology not easily available to consumers.

Today the question, usually asked from home or a cafe, is: "Why can't I do this at work?"
