Usable software built for you, not for us

Not too long ago we sat through an exhaustive demo from one of the leading applicant tracking systems in use today, or at least one of the best selling ones. This system offered a huge number of features and correspondingly huge number of screens and options which to become familiar with.  If you are lucky enough to be in a company where you can spare the costs, training time, and ongoing efforts to run such systems we salute you! But if your company wants to focus energy on the candidates themselves with a simpler solution we want to help make that happen.  In the hobby of astronomy the most often asked question is "what telescope should I buy?" There are dozens of advanced telescopes with as many features as professional observatories offer, hundred lb tripods, GPS, built in computers, the list goes on and on. The answer to the best telescope you can buy and a maxim for many things, the one you will use the most which is unsurprisingly often the simplest.
