recruitment management system

A recruitment management system (RMS), also known as an e-recruitment or online recruitment system, is a multi-component software tool designed to automate and facilitate the processes involved in finding, attracting, assessing, interviewing and hiring new personnel.

E-recruitment systems are widely used in the enterprise and elsewhere, including universities and charitable organizations. Current systems are often web-based portals that are integrated with an organization’s website.

Features of recruitment management systems include:

  • A user-friendly administrative interface.
  • The capacity to automatically post job listings to the corporate site and to online job banks.
  • Online application software that enforces input in a valid format for retrieval of relevant data.
  • The ability to capture and resumes for similar data retrieval.
  • Analytics software to assess and rank applicants.
  • Applicant and job tracking.
  • Scheduling software.
  • Contract generation software.
  • Report generation software.
