Quick Guide to Applicant Tracking Services
The internet has had a MAJOR impact on the way companies hire, track, and verify applicants for job openings. Applicant tracking systems enable job candidates to APPLY ONLINE for positions within your company.
They allow you to set up automatic disqualification parameters, pre-test candidates online, sort applications by various features, and PROCESS this data into your human resources system.
This is a very effective and efficient way for businesses to select the candidates who are best suited to fill their job openings.
Some systems offer the capability of RESUME MANAGEMENT and job board posting. Once the candidate has been made a job offer you can access the system to verify that a potential hire has the right EXPERIENCE, the required EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND, and solid references.
Applicant tracking and verification systems also help to reduce the COSTS associated with hiring a new employee.
Many larger companies with reduced human resources departments now spend about 7 percent of their recruitment budgets on applicant tracking systems and services.
