How Skills Testing Enhances Recruiting with an ATS

Applicant Tracking System and Skills Testing: Better Together

Applicant tracking systems (ATS) have revolutionized recruiting by making it easy to manage the hundreds of applicants responding to every job ad you post. And although these databases are easy to access and highly searchable, the results you get from keyword searches are often either too broad or too shallow. How can you know whether the candidates who come up in your search results really have the skills you need for the job? This is where online skills testing comes in, with test results directly integrated into your ATS.

Integrating online assessments with your ATS lets you:

  1. Target your search to actual skills, rather than stated ones.
  2. Rank candidates according to their skill levels in any number of areas.
  3. Cull out those who aren’t up to par, so you have a smaller, more talented applicant pool to choose from.
  4. Completely automate the qualifying process, from job posting to interview list.
