Tim Sackett Breaks Down Google’s Jump Into the ATS Market

Tim Sackett Tim Sackett, Worldwide FOT

So, Google announced last week that it is getting ready to launch an applicant tracking/job posting technology called Google Hire. Google already has a number of smaller technology companies in beta, but so far very little has leaked out from anyone on the experience and capabilities.

Google does have an initial splash page up allowing people to log in, but you can only log in if you’re actually one of those beta users. Speculation right out of the gate was that Google would allow employers to see your search history, which Google quickly went public and debunked, but it makes you wonder how something so crazy even got out?

DramaFever is one of those initial beta Google Hire customers. When you go to apply for a job on their site it throws you into the Google Hire workflow and you get a hint of what the candidate experience will be using Google Hire as your ATS.

Read the rest over at The Tim Sackett Project (an FOT contributor blog).

Tim Sackett

If you Google “Tim Sackett” you’ll find our Tim, and a truck driver chaplain. Our Tim is NOT the truck driver chaplain, although how awesome would that be if he was!? He is a prolific writer in the HR and TA space who just happens to also run an Engineering and IT contract staffing agency (HRU Technical Resources) out of Michigan. He also writes every day at his own blog, the Tim Sackett Project. Weirdly, he’s known as an expert in workplace hugging, which was kind of cool years ago, but now seems painfully creepy, but we still love him and he’s fairly harmless. Tim is also on the board of the Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals (ATAP), lifetime Michigan State Spartan fan, husband to a Hall of Fame wife, 3 sons, and his best friend Scout. He also wrote a book with SHRM called The Talent Fix, you can find it on Amazon.
