BizMerlinHR ATS vs. Just Using a Job Portal

Once in a while, we are asked this question: Can we not just use our preferred job portal (like Indeed, ZipRecruiter, etc)?  Why do we even need to use BizMerlinHR ATS?

The answer to that is a resounding Yes!  Yes, you can just use your preferred job portal!  That may even be preferable in some cases.  For example, if you are entirely OK with publishing your jobs just on your preferred job portal, then by all means, just use that portal.  If you are entirely OK with receiving candidates just from those registered on that portal, then by all means, just use that portal.  If you don’t have multiple recruiters, and are in an “owner led hiring” mode, then that may very well work for you.

The benefits of a specialized ATS like BizMerlinHR come when your organization has the scale and wants to find people from multiple job portals, have different recruiters, and want to seamlessly transition into onboarding your candidates.
