What exactly is an Applicant Tracking System?

Posted on November 19, 2008 at 7:47am 0 Comments

An Applicant Tracking System (ATS) is computer software which facilitates an organization’s administration in their staffing requirements. It is also referred to as a talent management platform or more simply, a resume database. Applicant tracking systems are increasingly moving online, i.e. web-based ATS, making it easier for customers to sign up and get started.

The basic purpose of an applicant tracking system is to aid an organization’s… Continue

How would an Ideal Applicant Tracking System look like ?

Posted on November 7, 2008 at 1:09am 5 Comments

Despite the widespread availability of applicant tracking and resume management solutions, none of

them really solves the hiring problem for businesses. Almost all the solutions come with high price

tags, and are bloated with features like ERP integration and succession planning that are irrelevant to

alot of businesses, leaving them with no choice but to rely on informal methods to manage job applications.

I am the “Admin” for the Recruiters On LinkedIn group, www.recruitingblogs.com/group/linkedin. You have recently joined and this is a "welcome" to the group and "here is how it works".

Over the past year I have been experimenting how best to facilitate members being able to connect with each other. Some want to connect with everyone and some are looking for a few meaningful connections.

1-2 times per week I send a group introduction message with 10-15 new members and reintroducing others.

What this means for you is simple, do you wish to be introduced to the group?

You have 4 options from which to choose:

(A) “Open Networker” with name, email address, and LinkedIn URL as you want to connect with anyone and everyone.

(B) “General Introduction” with name and LinkedIn URL as you are specific about who you want to connect with.

(C) “Lurker” no announcement will be made as you want to be on the sidelines connecting with people as you wish.

(D) “Super Open Networker” which is (A) plus having your contact information on the group page.

A caution on the “Open Networker”, you may be inundated with invitations to connect. For some this is exactly what they are hoping for and others this could be a pain.

I do ask, if you receive invitations from members you do not want to connect with that you “Archive” the message versus “I don’t know” so the sender is not penalized by LinkedIn although how you handle this is up to you.

Again your options are (A), (B), (C), (D).

Please include your LinkedIn URL and email address you prefer to receive invitations and send to paul@mnheadhunter.com

Thank you for your time.
