Today I will share the story of how my part-time employer, Adelphi University, tried to pass the blame of a botched search on their ATS. As a result, I was the unlucky applicant who was passed over for a position I was qualified for.
I don’t usually share personal insights of HR screw ups, however as the recipient I now feel the pain of some many applicants who have faced a similar fate. So, bear with me and indulge me for a couple of minutes as I spin this tale. I promise a lesson learned at the end too.
