Choosing the best applicant tracking system (ATS) software is a big decision for your company so we connected with ATS Integration expert Elaine Davidson and asked her some questions. Elaine has been a recruiting/talent acquisition leader at Blackrock, Pwc (PricewaterhouseCoopers) and Capco. More recently, Elaine launched Beacon Lane Consulting, a trusted advisor to CHROs, CEOs and Talent Acquisition leaders.

Here are some topics we covered:

  • Why selecting the “right” ATS for your company is such an important decision.
  • Where to start and the basic steps to choosing a new applicant tracking system.
  • Criteria for determining the best applicant tracking system for your company.
  • Who in the company should be driving the ATS selection decision and also who should be involved.
  • Different types of ATS integrations.
  • Why you shouldn’t rely on your applicant tracking system to generate your job descriptions.
