Has anyone found a good solution for using HubSpot as an Applicant Tracking System (ATS)? We are a recruitment firm and rather than integrating our current ATS, we would like to see if there is a way to leverage the current CRM to track the candidates for our open jobs.

We actually do this internally. Have done something more expansive for staffing/recruiting companies: https://aptitude8.com/blog/how-we-use-hubspot-for-recruiting

Really interesting read thanks for sharing. I have built an ATS and see a lot of similarities between what you have built and ours. Main difference is that I am creating a ticket for an application not a deal. I hadn’t considered using a deal. Be interested in your thoughts as to why a deal is a better option. The ability to send documents to applicant to sign off on is one that I can immediately see that I hadn’t thought of adding to my process, and I don’t believe I can do it through a ticket?
Be interested to hear your thoughts

I use Hubspot for one of my companies and am considering using either Hubspot or Zoho for another. I notice that Zoho has both Zoho Recruit and Zoho CRM. I like that Zoho Recruit integrates with other recruiting apps that Hubspot does not seem to have existing integrations. Does anyone have experience using the Zoho platform, and if that works better for combining CRM and applicant tracking into a single platform?

Hi all, very interesting thread, seems a lot of people are trying to bring the two worlds together! I am trying to do the same right now for our tech startup based in London, UK. We don't actually need the parsing part, which seems to be the main shortfall of HS, and would love to know how far you managed to get with setting up HS as an ATS @markaiello @Momenta @DOMahony .. Maybe you managed to get a stage that would be quite suitable for us? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We have given up trying to find a work-around solution. Too many separate parts are needed to assemble. Decided it is not worth the effort.

Yes, unfortunately same for us. Someone pointed me to Greenhouse.io recently. Thrive TRM is bad news (heard the founder is poaching recruiters who are using this for his own search firm).

@DOMahony , @markaiello @DaveConnect and others: did you get any traction on using Hubspot as an ATS? I represent a service called Skilldrop.com which plays a small part in the ATS, staffing software ecosystems, Just like you would use an external system for sending transactional emails, you use Skilldrop to deliver and share CVs/Resumes to secure compliance with privacy regulations. I think it would be interesting to see where Skilldrop can fit with your thoughts in using Hubspot as an ATS. If it makes sense for another Zoom, let me know.

Hi all, sorry to those who've messaged me in the thread above and for my lack of reply. Update: I haven't been successful in using HS as an ATS. I've spent time and money on more practical upgrades of HS instead. Regards Dermot

I propose that we have a kick-off Zoom. I'm happy to host. Theres a lot of interest from two parties here 1) those who are expert and are willing to help and 2) newbies like me who see the potential of a single CRM/ATS and are hobbie-crafting their Hubspot customization. I'll create an agenda once I speak to people one on one from both camps to ensure that's it an effective use of everyone's time and doesn't go off piste and feral with too many broad topics. It'll likely grow into a regular how-to event with a need to build/create space for a library of resources.
My schedule is here (Australia based but happy to dial in early or late) http://whenisgood.net/fby2wjr

Dave, I have over 25 years experience in running my own and franchised recruting firms. I have recently moved to HubSpot CRM to manage my clients, candidates and activities. If you would like, we could get on a call to discuss how I have completed this effort and the rewards I am seeing from its use. Let me know and I will connect with you!

Hey Robby - would we be able to connect? I just started with Hubspot for my home service business, and would love to use it as an ATS in recruiting technicians. I'd love to see how you've implemented Hubspot as an ATS - it's exactly what I'm trying to figure out now!
