Interesting conversation about Job Boards, Applicant Quality/Numbers and Applicant Tracking Systems.

There were some numbers that showed there was a drop-off in applicant numbers if there is a link out to a Third Party eRecruitment System rather than allowing the applicant to apply directly into the Job Board. There seems to be some sort of relationship between a longer application process and this drop-off. There is definitely more chance of someone flicking a CV for as many jobs as possible if it is made easy to do. There has been a history of HR managers being lumbered with the process of sorting through hundreds of CV’s Manually. “What a headache” they would say. Without the Facilities to auto communicate with Applicants, Intelligently scoring them, sort them into Talent Poolings there is really little to no value proposition in CV flicking.
