What is an Applicant Tracking System?

An applicant tracking system (ATS) is a software application designed to help an organization recruit and manage a candidate from applicant to hire.

  • An ATS can be used to:
    • Post jobs on a company's website.
    • Screen resumes more efficiently.
    • Manage candidate communications.
    • Schedule interviews.
    • House manager interview feedback.
    • Push a company's open jobs to various career sites and other social media outlets.
  • An ATS helps recruiters minimize the size of the talent pool without wasting precious time and energy, not to mention money.
  • It is estimated that roughly 50 percent of all mid-sized companies and almost all large corporations use some type of applicant tracking system.
