Which companies in Poland were looking for recruiters during January 2020? Data from the ats system Element

Maciej Michalewski

I have look it up while testing the beta version of the new feature of our ATS system, the job ad monitoring module.

With this new feature, we can generate interesting job ads reports within seconds in our applicant tracking software. We can instantly know who publish ads, on what job boards, when, and for what position. The job board monitoring feature implemented in our applicant tracking system is nothing less than a huge, constantly updated database of Polish market recruitment needs, available in a matter of seconds. 

Therefore, in our ATS system it is now possible to track the changing needs of employers, the popularity of job portals, advertisements of specific companies, or entire industries. Our users can also keep an eye on their competition at all times.

What are some examples of practical applications of this particular Element system function

Let’s say I am an „internal HR” and recruit sales engineers. If I use Element then I can instantly find out which companies in the last quarter (or e.g., during the previous 12 months) have published job ads for a given position and on which job portals. How is that useful for me? Well, there may exist a job board that I haven’t tested before, and that is often used by other companies to publish job ads for sales engineers. If such a portal exists, then it’s probably worth testing this new source of candidates. Since a number of companies have been publishing ads on this portal for a longer period of time, maybe then it is indeed effective.

Now let’s say I am a recruitment agency, then … well, in the case of recruitment agencies, there are so many benefits that I will write a separate blog post about it. Please note that I have been running a recruitment business myself for many years, and I have so many ideas how this business can benefit from this feature. Okay, let me show you one of the most obvious examples – thanks to the constant job boards monitoring, I will never miss a client who is recruiting for the sales engineer position. Assuming I have just finished a project for this position, I have a pool of great candidates for that client!

Element applicant tracking system uses advanced technologies for scanning job ads published on may different job boards and Linkedin. To collect data, we regularly visit the monitored job boards and record information about who published the ad, when, and for which position. Our tools also verify the content of the ad. This verification is needed to classify the ads into the appropriate categories and to eliminate duplicates. The adoption of specific rules to classify ads in the proper categories may result in other reports that adopt different criteria, naturally presenting different results.

About the job ads monitoring feature of our applicant tracking system.

The feature of job board monitoring has been developed in our ATS for several years. Over time, we have systematically added a number of job boards that are monitored continuously by our algorithms. In May 2019, we published a blog post describing a number of benefits arising from the feature implemented in an applicant tracking software. Currently, we are working on making it possible for our ATS’s clients to generate reports on all of the biggest Polish, and soon international job boards. Our job ads monitoring module is the next step on the way to provide Element clients with the most modern technologies in the recruitment industry.

Element ATS collects data from a verity of job boards, it is important to note that the collected data inherit a margin of error. It isn’t easy to recognize if two very similar job ads relate to the same job offer. It is very common practice to write the same job offer in different ways to attract more candidates. This recruitment strategy results in deviated reports.
