ATSSync by CareerBuilder

ATS Sync Standard allows a seamless integration between CareerBuilder’s Talent Discovery Platform (TDP) and your ATS to help recruiters find the most qualified candidates, regardless of where the candidate data resides.  Reduce the amount of time it takes to find the right candidate by using powerful semantic search technology to search your private data and CareerBuilder data, including public CareerBuilder and Open-web resumes, in the same interface.

CareerBuilder’s ATS Sync Standard product accesses the data within your ATS, cleans and normalizes it, and makes it searchable from within the Talent Discovery Platform.  This allows you to start your search process by unlocking the candidates who have already expressed interest in your organization resulting in faster hires. The ATS Sync product also allows you to export any candidate data from the Talent Discovery Platform into your ATS to take future action on viable candidates.

CareerBuilder’s ATS Sync Standard enables you to:

  • Pull: Import candidate profile and status data from your ATS into the Talent Discovery Platform
  • Push: Export individual candidates and assign them to requisition IDs from the TDP to your ATS via the ‘Export to ATS’ widget found when you select a candidate’s profile
