POTTSTOWN PA – Say “so long” to employee application forms, “bye-bye” to letters of introduction or resumes, and “see ya’ later” to other hiring paperwork in the employee recruitment practices of the Pottsgrove School District.
That’s the theory, at least, behind the district’s $3,750 annual subscription to TalentEd Recruit & Hire-brand software, in an expense approved last week (Dec. 11, 2012) by the Board of School Directors.
The software is provided by Netchemia, a Kansas-based company that specializes in what its website calls “talent management solutions for K-12 school districts.” Its applicant tracking and hiring program was named one of the top 100 products chosen by readers of District Administration magazine, an education trade journal. It currently is used by more than 1,000 school districts nationwide, according to a Netchemia press release.
Superintendent Shellie Feola said the online application and hiring management system will help Pottsgrove eliminate much of the paperwork associated with finding and placing good employees. The software subscription was recommended by Dr. Leticia M. Rodriguez, the district’s interim director of human resources, Feola said.
