The Challenge

Finding quality candidates faster

Team Engagement Specialist Valerie Murray joined Achieving True Self in 2018. At the time, the organization was having difficulty finding qualified candidates as fast as they needed them.

When hiring qualified behavior consultants and technicians, the Achieving True Self team looks for passionate individuals who enjoy providing direct services in a one-on-one capacity. Because therapists meet with individuals in family homes and community settings, they’re expected to be highly professional, as well as compassionate, fun and caring.

In addition to certifications and ABA experience, Achieving True Self seeks out motivated therapists who understand the importance of collecting data to provide the best possible support to their clients.

Valerie and her team noticed that the volume of applicants that met these requirements was shrinking. It was clear they needed to find a way to improve their candidate flow and gain better end-to-end visibility into their recruiting process.

“We were looking to add a service that put our jobs out there for us,” said Valerie. “We wanted an applicant tracking system to be able to get us more. We couldn’t see as much — like where the jobs were going — with our other system.”

To find the best possible employees for their clients, Achieving True Self needed an applicant tracking system that could streamline their recruiting processes while increasing the quality of candidates in the pipeline.

The Solution

JazzHR’s best-in-class ATS

The need for an automated hiring system was clear, but Valerie and her team also required a solution that would empower them to identify and engage qualified candidates.

“I’ve been in recruiting for some odd years now, and having an applicant tracking system is crucial. You have to have it,” Valerie said.

After looking at several solutions, Valerie ultimately decided to partner with JazzHR for its ease-of-use and ability to source more quality candidates faster. The local Pittsburgh connection also helped Valerie to make the decision. In JazzHR, she saw a reliable applicant tracking system that could offer robust support.

Valerie was impressed with JazzHR’s capabilities immediately, noting that, “JazzHR is very user-friendly. It’s very easy to teach and self- explanatory. It’s easy-to-use.”


A more robust and organized talent pipeline

The Achieving True Self team was able to implement JazzHR quickly and begin ramping up their recruiting efforts almost immediately. They began to see an increase in candidate traffic and an improvement in the quality of candidates they attracted. JazzHR’s powerful automation and innovative feature set allowed the recruiting team to collaborate more easily while staying organized. Using the Category feature, Discussion Tab and Merge functionality, the team can now hire qualified candidates with confidence. “With the Category feature, we can create an evergreen talent pool and then create categories for each county,” said Valerie. “That feature has been really helpful. It’s also really easy to navigate and search in JazzHR because you keep it simple.” Other features like Knockout Questions, the Candidate Importer Chrome Extension, and eDocuments keep the process moving forward with speed and confidence.

The Bottom Line

Throughout the partnership, JazzHR’s success team has helped Achieving True Self to leverage JazzHR’s robust collection of best-in-class tools to the fullest. Since she and her department are based nearby, Valerie met with JazzHR’s team in-person for hands-on assistance in identifying new features and maximizing their use. Since choosing JazzHR, Achieving True Self has collected more than 3,500 resumes, created 216 jobs and made over 175 hires.

The continued relationship with JazzHR will allow the Achieving True Self organization to more effectively support its staff members, clients, and local communities.
