If you’re at all involved in the recruiting industry, you probably know what ATS is. If not, here’s a simple explanation.
An ATS, or applicant tracking system, is a software application that allows companies to electronically handle recruiting needs.
The purpose of an ATS is to help companies manage their recruiting efforts, including better management of resumes and applicant information. ATS information can be collected from internal applications on the company’s Web site or from job boards, according to an article by Wikipedia.
