About This Recruiting Guide — Alan Cooke, Research Manager, TrustRadius

Photo of Alan Cooke, Research Manager, TrustRadius This guide provides a detailed look at the recruiting software market, which is increasingly being seen as one component of the Talent Management portfolio of capabilities. However, there are a number of standalone recruiting products in addition to the suite products and this fact, in conjunction with the rapid development and shifting focus of the market, means that Recruiting software merits a dedicated guide. Some products included in our Core HR guide and Talent Management guides are also featured here, but with a focus on their recruiting capabilities. Technology to help organizations source and hire the very best people is an increasingly strategic goal for all organizations, and recent years have seen considerable development of the toolsets available to meet this goal. The recruiting software marketplace is a particularly fast-moving one.

In the guide you will find:

  • A primer on Recruiting / Applicant Tracking software for those new to the field
  • A discussion of trends and new technology that is shifting the center of gravity of this market
  • Analyses (2 dimensional charts) we call TrustMaps™, comparing the software solutions based on “Likelihood to Recommend” ratings and evaluation frequencies on TrustRadius
