An applicant tracking system (ATS) is a recruitment software used by many organizations. This system can help to take candidate applications, keep track of applicants, as well as sort through and screen resumes. The candidate applies online, and their application goes directly to the applicant tracking system. This system will often determine whether this candidate has strong potential for the role before giving recruiters only the best resumes to review.
Employers love using applicant tracking systems because they only have to read through a few CVs rather than a few hundred. This reduces the time and cost it takes to hire, as well as improving the quality of hires.
