What is an applicant tracking system?

An applicant tracking system is an online program used to monitor and coordinate job openings and applications and help manage recruitment needs.

Jobs are posted online and candidate resumes and applications are stored inside the program’s secure database to permit effective searching, matching and routing of applicants by HR staff.

Applicant tracking systems help reduce inefficiencies by automating processes and allow for better and faster recruitment decisions

What are the advantages of the online applicant site?

There are a number of advantages to using the online applicant site. Some of these include the ability to:

I don’t have easy access to a computer at home. How can I apply online?

Your local library can also help you to access a computer.

You may also apply at one of our three location sites (Vincentian Home; Vincentian de Marillac and Marian Manor).

I have registered online, why did I not receive an email containing my temporary password?

Check the spam/junk mail folder on your email application.

What is the status of my application?

Resumes and applications are sent directly to the recruiter for review. If your skillset is a match for the open position, you will be contacted.

What kind of information will I be asked for in the online application?

You will be asked to provide personal information such as a name, address, phone number, etc. You will also be asked to provide information about your education, current and previous employment. You will need to furnish details about your current and past employment history including places of employment, dates of employment, job titles, and major job duties. If you have a resume, you can attach that instead of filling out the job application. You may also attach a cover letter and other documents.

Do I have to apply for a job online?

Yes. All the materials needed to successfully coordinate your search – resumes, cover letters, references – will be automatically cataloged into the account you create when you log into the Applicant Tracking System (ATS).
