In June last year Microsoft announced their largest ever acquisition. Purchasing LinkedIn for a price that works out as just over $26 billion. The recruitment world did not dance with joy at this news, as anyone who's been around a little while knows that when a product/service you use gets sold for a massive price, the simple laws of economics mean that the buyer will be wanting to recoup this money and soon. 7 months on, LinkedIn looks to have already started this with price rises and the retirement of some features that you can only access if you upgrade to more expensive products.
Choosing the right technology to support your recruitment process is a huge decision. As EasyWeb enters its tenth year we have just implemented our third (and final!) Applicant Tracking System (ATS) to deliver our service. The previous one offered an improvement on the first, but still wasn’t as “in tune” with our service as we’d have liked.
