What’s new in ACTIVATE for Q1 2018

Topics: HR technology

Posted by NAS on Mar 1, 2018 9:00:00 AM


At NAS, we understand that HR recruitment is always evolving and technology must continually rise to meet new challenges. That’s why we continue to make significant enhancements to our candidate attraction platform. ACTIVATE™ is a proprietary, cloud-based solution that combines intuitive job search functionality with career site content. It is designed to make your career site candidate-friendly, while offering your recruiting team significant advantages that make their jobs easier, too.

Recent upgrades to the ACTIVATE™ platform include:

Job Search

  • On a Job Details page, you can now add a “Jobs You May Like” tool at the bottom of the page to direct candidates to similar jobs (based on keyword, location and other factors related to the job candidates are currently viewing).
  • Featured Jobs can be placed at the top of a Job Results page; when candidates are performing a search and there is a featured job in the dashboard that matches their search criteria, the result will appear at the top of the list. This gives even more visibility to Featured Jobs.
  • Featured Groups allows you to post multiple single positions by group, displayed to give more jobs in a specific area more visibility. Featured Groups can also be displayed on your career site home page, as well as individual career site pages within ACTIVATE™, such as a job family page (Nursing, Corporate, etc.).
  • Posted Date feature allows candidates to search for jobs posted Today, 14 days, 30 days and Any.

Four tips to maximize career site effectiveness

Topics: career sites

Posted by Lori Vrcan on Feb 1, 2018 9:00:00 AM


Sometimes the simplest things are the least obvious. Take your career site, for example. How can you ensure that it is engaging candidates effectively and efficiently? Do it by making a few small tweaks that can make a big difference in your recruitment success.

1. Make your search button stand out.

It may seem like a no-brainer, but you can go online and find instances where the search button requires its own search. Let’s face it, 80% of candidates who come to your career site want to search jobs. Sure, other content is important, but make no mistake, the search button is prime real estate. Anchor it at the top. Make it prominent. Candidates will get what they want, and so will you.
