Getting the screening process right is so critical; ATR recruiting manager Josh Seliner advises how to do it better

Even if you get the end result right, the process of getting to that great hire can be a lengthy road, and at the very least it’s time consuming.

By Andrea Brenholz - CMO |   Mon, Mar 19, 2018 @ 10:09 AM

It’s hard to find an industry that technology hasn’t touched.

HR’s Important Role in Recruiting Top Tech Talent

By Andrea Brenholz - CMO |   Wed, Mar 07, 2018 @ 07:55 AM

At a time when each open IT position in a company represents an outright battle to find and hire a great tech pro, it’s easy to think that the best approach is to act quickly and bypass anything that seems like it might slow you down. In many cases, this may mean that departmental managers and executives are involved but may fail to take Human Resources into account. Fairly or not, HR is sometimes seen as a hindrance rather than a help, especially when hiring specialized talent like technical or IT workers. However, for those recruiting top tech talent, it’s necessary to understand the significant impact the HR department can have on hiring success or failure.

Why the Candidate Screening Process Is the Most Crucial Aspect of Recruiting

By Andrea Brenholz - CMO |   Thu, Mar 01, 2018 @ 02:23 PM

The old adage is true: good people are hard to find. In many industries, and especially when it concerns IT talent, open roles drastically outnumber skilled professionals. Naturally, organizations respond to this skills shortage by ramping up recruiting efforts, but this often results in an increased response from unqualified applicants. While the overall quality of your recruiting strategy is important, the state of your candidate screening process can singlehandedly determine hiring success or failure.

VTO Spotlight - Saroj Ghosh Helps Out the Muscular Dystrophy Assocation

By ATR International |   Thu, Dec 21, 2017 @ 09:00 AM


My time volunteering with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) was an amazing experience that I would encourage all people to take part in. You are probably familiar with their annual Labor Day telethon, and they also sponsor Bike-A-Thons, Muscle Walks, and other fundraising activities. Money raised goes to research but also funds things for children challenged by MD.

My daughter has been working with the organization for a long time; she first started working with the MDA in high school and loves working at the MDA Summer Camp. I’d been looking for an opportunity to give back to the community and she convinced me to get involved with the camp. It’s been a part of her life for the past 11 years, so I decided to sign up.

By Jerry Brenholz |   Thu, Nov 23, 2017 @ 01:49 PM

Happy Thanksgiving! What a year it has been! As we take time to reflect upon all that we are thankful for, I wanted to express great appreciation to the team at ATR International. Without your hard work and determination to succeed, our company would not have been able to achieve what it has this past year. A testament to this hard work and dedication was that out of 12,000 different companies, ATR was selected and received the Supplier of the Year award given by the NMSDC for 2017. Even with this recent success, the past twenty-nine years that we have been in business have not always been the smoothest of rides. The dedication and resilience of our team is why we continue to experience business success in the present day.
