What is an Applicant Tracking System (ATS)?

recruitment profile

An applicant tracking system (ATS) is a core piece of software that streamlines the recruitment process by managing, storing, and keeping track of a company’s job candidates. It serves as a company’s system of record for hiring and centralising all parts of the recruitment process including, but not limited to: managing job postings, communicating with candidates, storing resumes and notes, scheduling interviews, collecting interview feedback, and extending offers to candidates. In other words, it makes hiring easier and more efficient – regardless of the size of your company.
