If you’re a Kenexa-Brassring ATS client, you are likely frustrated with how your default job pages look “out of the box” without any customization. And that’s a clear obstacle to you having effective employer branding/candidate experience.

Here is an example of a basic, “out of the box” job description page of a Kenexa-Brassring ATS client:

Below are 5 examples of Brassring ATS clients using “overlays” to give themselves job pages that stand out, engage and convert. Notice the huge difference between the basic job page above compared to these job pages below:

Options for Overlays to your Kenexa-Brassring Job Pages

The Brassring ATS does not include any of the features above in their “out of the box” job pages. You instead need to do custom front-end software development (CSS-oriented) to get such “rich content” on your job pages.

If you don’t have internal software developers to customize the job data coming out of your Brassring, another alternative is to use a job marketing platform like Ongig  where all the software development is built in and sends all candidates into the Brassring.  A third alternative is that you could hire a marketing/ad agency.
