Community managers and the evolution of the recruiting function

i_team_peopleperson The idea of a community manager isn’t unique to the recruiting function. The term is borrowed from the consumer world and emerged with the influence social media is exerting on brand engagement and reputation.

Dave Williams

Selecting an ATS

I've seen a lot of questions recently about selecting an ATS and thought I would share an article I wrote a few years ago (2003, I believe) since much is still relevant - and what's not is good for a nostalgic chuckle. Unfortunately, it may also reveal how little has changed with ATS technology.
