Absolutely CityVP 馃悵 Manjit - as with all technology - most systems are put in place to save time for the user and there are those that will try to get around it. I'd love to be able to reach those job seekers that continue to apply for jobs that they do not qualify for, as it's a time waster for both job seeker and the HR industry. I try to always speak to both sides of employers and job seekers challenges. :-) #24

With ATS systems like Taleo candidates who apply for jobs they don't qualify for, that would actually serve to hurt the candidate since ATS is a log, if anything once candidates realize that automated systems take account of their past behaviours, that will eventually see candidates being more careful about targeting jobs they are qualified for - what wastes a recruiters time also now can serve as a black mark against the candidate if they maintain the habit of wasting recruiters time. Also they kick themselves in the foot because of their failure to relate job specifications with their actual talent. There will be people who will figure out how to game the system and that is the actual drawback of automated systems - this way one is not getting the best candidate but the Machiavellian candidate that knows how to play the system. While recruitment is not the same thing as HR, it such outcomes that lead to HR gaining a bad rap - it is a systemic issue, which having read your prior pieces I am sure you are equally aware of and just as wise to.
