Share Article

According to a research report by Jobscience, HR professionals cannot differentiate between applicant tracking systems (ATS) during the selection process and more than 50 percent end up dissatisfied. There are many myths perpetuated by ATS providers, and Jobscience has determined the top five. Many advertise up-to-date technology, but few provide upgrades throughout the life of the contract to ensure that the customers are utilizing the best technology to find, hire, and track the best fitting candidates. Professionals should use the same care in searching for a recruiting technology provider as they would a candidate since they are directly related.

According to a research report by Jobscience, HR professionals cannot differentiate between applicant tracking systems (ATS) during the selection process and more than 50 percent end up dissatisfied.

There are many myths perpetuated by ATS providers, and Jobscience has determined the top five. These can be found in the white paper, “Top 5 Recruiting Technology Myths”, now available through Jobscience written for hospital recruiting professionals and executives.

Myth #2: All ATS providers offer up-to-date technology. Many ATS providers continue to label outdated recruiting technology as up-to-date because they are confident their prospects will not know the difference. What is being missed?

  •      Resume search agents that crawl multiple sites
  •     Corporate career site talent pool
  •     Prequalification for certified professionals
  •     Built-in candidate email communication system
  •     The ability to integrate with any job board and report on effectiveness of each
  •     Network of candidates from multiple job boards, associations, and regional databases

Many advertise up-to-date technology, but few provide upgrades throughout the life of the contract to ensure that the customers are utilizing the best technology to find, hire, and track the best fitting candidates. Professionals should use the same care in searching for a recruiting technology provider as they would a candidate since they are directly related. For more information on these and other features read "Top 5 Recruiting Technology Myths."

“All ATS providers are not the same, nor are their solutions,” says Terry Elliott, CFO of Jobscience. “A lot of the systems we see do as much harm as good. Hospitals that are not using benchmark data and metrics reporting are falling further behind.”
