  • Hands-on experience administering an applicant tracking system is required
  • An understanding of the recruiting lifecycle and the needs of core users (candidates, recruiters, coordinators, hiring managers, interviewers)
  • Excellent communication skills and experience partnering with a wide variety of stakeholders
