Class Description: Applicant tracking systems are a necessary evil in the recruiting world. Ask most anyone in our space about their ATS and you will likely get a groan, an eye roll, and maybe an earful. Even worse, ask job seekers about their application (candidate) experiences and you often get the same response! Uh oh...
And what if you don't have a system, or need to upgrade - where should you start? How do you know what you really need so you don't fall prey to the salesperson song and dance? Applicant tracking systems are a significant investment of time and resources, not to mention one of your biggest tools for compliance; how confident are you that you can make the appropriate business case for your ATS needs when it's time to upgrade or make a buying decision?
In this session, we'll discuss what to look for when it comes to selecting, as well as using, recruiting technology, as well as best practices to ensure you're making the best use of those tools. Your ATS is a reflection of your employment brand, so we'll also spend some time on caring for the job seeker/candidate experience, as well as the experience and expectations for the recruiter and hiring manager.
In this 90 minute webinar you will learn:
- The pros and cons of applicant tracking systems
- The business case for an effective ATS and what you should look for when making a purchasing decision (to include build vs. buy, and long-term impact)
- How to talk with leaders and the sales people in this space.
- How to get the best use of your current or new system.
- Caring for the candidate experience, your career site and your brand.
