Online applications can take hours of candidates' time when applying for a job. While some firms are moving away from these online systems, many companies move towards them.
A recent survey states that 73% of businesses of all sizes use talent acquisition software to source, track, analyse, and onboard new recruits. 99% of the US Fortune 500 companies use applicant tracking system (ATS) providers, allowing them to customise questions and set filters, and automate the bulk of the filtering labour.
What serves the employer well may not work for the prospective employee.
From a hiring manager's perspective, applicant tracking systems are beneficial, especially with a higher volume of applicants for every open role.
ATS systems can collate the data from every applicant's resume and display it in a searchable spreadsheet. More advanced software can separate candidates without human oversight and present a sifted pool of priority applicants.
