ClickDef Member Working Group

This new TAtech Member Working Group will focus on answering the question, “What is a click?”.  Chaired by Tom Chevalier, VP of Product at Appcast, it will discuss, refine, and ultimately publish a standard industry definition which TAtech will then promulgate to both the industry and employers. In addition, the Group may provide industry assets (such as a shared bot list) for use by the talent acquisition industry.

Anticipated topics the Group will address include:

  1. Bots
  2. Duplicates
  3. Locations
  4. Frequency

An informational kick-off teleconference will be scheduled for early December. If you’d like to participate, contact Peter Weddle, TAtech CEO, at or 203-964-1888.
