Many folks start their research by seeking insight from colleagues on sites such as ERE.net or RecruitingBlogs.com, while others turn to sites that offer an ATS directory.



When it comes to directories, I have a preference for… Continue

Why the Recession is Good for You, the Buyers of Software. 3 Emerging Trends From the Fishbowl

“You better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone. For the times they are a-changin’”

Bob Dylan







The Fishbowl



A couple of weeks ago I learned that my co-workers call the office that I share with our CEO, “The Fishbowl”. The Fishbowl is the nerve center of Newton Software. Given our small footprint, the Fishbowl acts as the design studio, front office, communications center and test lab. Sometimes our co-workers might say it more resembles an… Continue

Summer Plans Revealed: More Innovation, Less Fish



“Our Age of Anxiety is, in great part, the result of trying to do today’s jobs with yesterday’s tools.” Marshall McLuhan











I was at a barbeque in San Francisco this weekend and while everyone agreed that it’s nice that summer has finally arrived, our conversation inevitably meandered into talk of work and our summer work intentions. Alex, a partner in a small marketing consultancy, remarked how he planned to lay low and enjoy the summer, taking… Continue

How to Approach a Partnership with an ATS Vendor

Every so often I get asked by companies or individuals what I feel is the best way to approach a partnership with an applicant tracking system (ATS) vendor. This typically revolves around the introduction of a new technical integration the company has to offer. While it is important to note every potential partnership is different, I believe there are some factors that can maximize the partnership potential. Again, these factors might differ from ATS vendor to ATS vender depending on the type… Continue

Request for Applicant Tracking System Research

I found the following post on Craigslist in several locations: http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/etc/1234727293.html. It reads as follows:



“Do you use an Applicant Tracking System (Research Study)? (Greater Chicago)



I am conducting usability research for an applicant tracking system. If you work in the HR field and use one of these, I would like to invite you to take part in a 45-60 minute usability… Continue

Save your Job! Show your Boss your worth, demo this right here…

It’s summer time already in the South, 90 degrees outside and humid as Vietnam 1969. The layoffs are still hot too. Not a whole lot of jobs reqs either.



Your Boss is pacing the office like a half crazed Nazi commander waiting for orders to drop kick more recruiters out. Everyone is doing their best to look busy, marching down the halls as they peck away on their blackberry and even giving Social Media Recruiting presentations.

The Strategy of Choosing an ATS

Surprisingly, the first step to choosing an Applicant Tracking System is not actually looking at the different options out there. As brought up by the folks at Aon Consulting, the first step to implementing an ATS is looking internally to determine exactly what you need. This may take some time and effort (two things people are not usually eager to give up) but in the long run it will actually make the… Continue

Don’t make me jump!

If HMOs were developed to drive normally well-adjusted sick people over the edge, then I would posit that the typical ATS was designed to make a job seeker sink into deep and utter despair.

Yes, I understand why an ATS is a useful - in some cases, necessary - part of a company’s career site, particularly in these days of few jobs and many applicants.

The ATS Guy Interview with Bill Vick

Several weeks ago I was contacted by Bill Vick from XtremeRecruiting.tv to do an interview covering the latest in applicant tracking system (ATS). It was a very nice surprise and compliment, yet I did get a bit nervous. To help ease my nerves, my wife told me to just have fun like Recruiting Animal did in his interview. While I didn’t really take the Animal’s approach, I still had a great time. Bill just posted the interview today. Here is the link:… Continue

Hiring is, ironically, harder during a recession

Even though companies are laying off employees left and right, it’s still difficult for HR managers and recruiters to fill the few empty positions they do have. Why is that? As Rapleaf CEO Auren Hoffman explains in his blog Summation, it’s all about quantity versus quality. The top performers (what Hoffman calls A-Players) in a department are rarely fired; that misfortune usually falls on the… Continue

Build Your Own Applicant Tracking System

There are lots of folks out there that simply like to build things themselves. This can easily be seen with home improvement and is backed up with the success of “How to” books and the DIY network. The same is true for software.



A few weeks ago, I was browsing around the internet for some applicant tracking system (ATS) information and came across a video entitled “Build Your Own n-Tier Applicant Tracking System (ATS) in 10… Continue

Applicant Tracking System Guides

There are a number of different applicant tracking system (ATS) guides available to help both HR professionals and recruiters narrow down on the vast amount of solutions. These guides typically come from separate angles ranging from ATS vendors steering clients towards their solutions to 3rd party sources with a large amount of ATS experience.



While I have created, reviewed, and purchased many of these guides, I haven’t found one all-inclusive guide that covers all of the features,… Continue

What's in a name? How we screwed up naming in Newton once and why we won't ever again.

Be really (really) careful how you name things. And, NEVER use the same word to describe two different things.



Sloppy naming can lead to minor frustrations, or it can lead to some really big problems for your users. The road to sloppy naming is paved by the careless use of synonyms or by naming two different things with the same word or phrase.



First of all, let’s look at synonyms (the more obvious of the two naming blunders). When considering a naming framework for… Continue

2009 Applicant Tracking System Vendor List

Starting over a year ago, I began keeping track of all of the different ATS systems available. Now the list has grown to almost 140 different vendors. Yikes! I thought it might be nice to make this list available to folks, so I helped a group of friends build a little site with the list. For anyone interest, I would welcome any feedback before I send it to everyone. Please feel free to contact me if you would like a sneak peek.

All these resumes and Where do They Go?

I noticed a very interesting blog yesterday about a new recruiter inquiring about choosing and the validity of:

ATS. A woman responded that they, ATS"s, were a waste of time unless you have a data entry person, and even then there value were was questionable.



My situation is different, but has similarities. I do have an ATS system that I have never really developed or used fully. It also only cost 200 dollars. It will do some automatic data entry, particularly if you set up a… Continue

If you need to explain how something works, it probably won’t. Why designing ATS software for the critical users matters.

At Newton, we believe that the people who use our software the most aren’t necessarily the people that are critical to its success. Our “Critical User” is the person that uses Newton intermittently, every now and then, once a day, once a week, or maybe even less.



Up to this point, companies have designed business software almost entirely for what we might call a “Power User”, i.e. people that are going to use it day in and day out. If you… Continue
