The federal government is funding several initiatives to help healthcare organizations invest in IT.

The art of writing a resume is one that has been practiced for years and years as a tool to help job seekers define their skills and experience. Over time the traditional and recognized way of formatting and writing a resume has changed minimally, or has it? It use to be that you would print our resume and hand deliver it to the employer, then came fax and email, and now we have the concept of online job boards.

Why are we not making it happen BEFORE the trend hits? 2 years ago I was…Continue
One of the most popular industries for contract staffing is Information Technology. It is also one of the trickiest to navigate in terms of overtime requirements.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)requires that most employees have to be paid at a rate of 1.5 times their regular pay rate for any hours worked over 40 in a work week.

For many organizations, the ATS represents the central technology that they use to recruit top talent. It provides a great way for them to capture applicants and manage the hiring process from apply to hire. Through these functions, the ATS is an integral technology for your recruiting process.
