Ask 100 prospects and you will hear 100 complaints about your ATS. Or any ATS. What we see as a "necessary evil," your prospects see as more evidence that you care far more about your internal processes, in making things easier for you than in attracting great talent.
Is it true? Would you…Continue

I attended a recruitment conference / technology event in London today. I didn't stay long, just for the first hour or so. The event organisers started the day with a set of "speed pitches" from the various vendors involved in sponsoring / exhibiting at the event. As someone who is involved in both recruiting and implement inbound marketing strategies for technology companies, this would be interesting exercise.
And it certainly was for a number of reasons but perhaps not for the…Continue

After some recent scheduling inconsistencies causing a few extra absences from the gym, I was pumped to get my sweat on today. My energy level was revved up from the brief break, so I was eager to take advantage of the situation to get back in the groove.
My workout routine started out strong and I…Continue
Job candidates jump through the hoops that companies and recruiters set up for them. Some have decided that they may only get one shot at gaining all of the information possible from a candidate and placed lots and lots of hoops at the application portion of the process. They go online to apply for the job, and in some cases, they stay involved in that application process for hours - uploading a…Continue
In the early 2000's, I had just started working in recruiting and didn't know anything about the industry or its tools. My first week on the job, the company was implementing a new ATS (Applicant Tracking System). Dave, the guy who was leading the implementation, didn't show up my second day on the job and soon the…Continue

A lot of folks talk about the value of performing Search Engine Optimization on your job postings, but very rarely do we get the chance to see actual statistics regarding the benefits.
In order to get an accurate read on the performance of an SEO project, we first need to gather the current performance data to use as a benchmark for the "Before" statistics. To do this, establish the list of keywords you want to optimize for and run the queries through the Google search engine. You may…Continue
Nine years recruitment experience has made me sensitive to the struggles of a Jobseeker. All too often I hear about the very lengthy and daunting recruitment processes that follow.
Unfortunately for Jobseekers, clicking the ‘apply’ button for that perfect job can mean being redirected to a site and an application process of 6+ pages to complete; an arguably ‘necessary’ requirement for gaining candidate information.
But are the words ‘lengthy’ and ‘daunting’ really the words an…Continue

We’ve been doing some recruiting recently and let’s not mince words: it’s a gigantic pain in the backside. My company is now entering a real growth situation and we’re starting to staff up and when starting the hiring process the other day it occurred to me just how backward and upside down the whole hiring malarkey is. So it got me thinking……’we’re hiring a web developer, in a perfect world, how would I like it to happen’ and this is what I came up…Continue

The reason I ask is, nobody seems to be happy with the one they’re using. Having attended many HR and recruiting conferences and events, I’ve noticed a consistent trend. When I ask someone what ATS they’re using, I here, “Unfortunately…[insert ATS name]. The ATS name varies, but the sentiment is the same. It’s rare to find anyone who actually likes using his or her ATS. Why is that? Weren’t ATSs designed to automate processes and make the life of a recruiter easier? They’ve been around for…Continue
