I’m frequently asked how staffing and recruitment providers can fill open job orders when there aren’t enough people to fill them. I answer that question in this episode and also provide specific details for firms of different sizes.
Concrete advice combined with some blunt commentary. That’s what you’ll hear in this conversation with Doug Coull, Founder and CEO of APS, the makers of SmartSearch. According to Doug, having a better ATS experience requires that staffing companies change their perspective on software selection. He also believes that the normal customer-vendor paradigm is ineffective and suggests a different approach. Plus he doesn’t hold back when he shares what he thinks is wrong with the software industry. Doug mentions a software selection guide in the podcast. You can request that here.
