Live Webinar: Recruiting 101 – How to Choose the Right ATS

Recruiting 101 – How to Choose the Right ATS. Let’s face it: Recruiting is hard. It’s nearly impossible without recruiting software or an applicant tracking system to help you automate the massive amount of daily tasks involved in hiring.

Join us on Thursday, June 28, 2018, Time: 11:00 AM PST, 1:00 PM EST, for a live webinar to learn what an applicant tracking system is, what to look for, and how to choose the right vendor.
