We recently launched a profile on The Muse, but it’s too soon to understand the impact it may have.

We post all of our job descriptions on our own site, and have hired nearly everybody on our team that way. We don’t use an applicant tracking system yet, but we're getting close to that point. For now, The Muse has a back-end interface that allows you to see everyone who's applied, and archive them. We've been able to make about 5-6 offers a month this way. I think applicant tracking systems become necessary somewhere around making 5-8 offers a month. if you believe that each offer is likely the result of 2-10/15 people you've interviewed, then you've received some multiple of that in terms of applications and it becomes unwieldy. It also depends on how many people are doing the hiring. Now, our hiring is primarily controlled by individual teams, so it's highly manageable. But once you have a full-time recruiting hire, you need a way of centralizing all applicants and the hiring process. We are approaching that point now.
