SeekOut overview

What is SeekOut?

SeekOut is a cloud-based recruiting solution designed to help businesses automate processes related to candidate hiring. The artificial intelligence (AI) enabled platform lets recruiting agencies receive candidate recommendations based on job descriptions.

Key features of SeekOut include resume parsing, candidate management, collaboration tools, resume search, and a self-service portal. It uses Boolean search technology to locate various types of candidate profiles, such as public, GitHub, and subject matter experts. Detailed information can be viewed about candidate experience, software development contributions, research papers, patents, and conference presentations.

SeekOut allows recruiters to use Power Filters to sort candidate profiles based on security clearance, in-demand roles, specific companies, and work authorization status.

SeekOut comes with a Blind Hiring Mode, which lets users source talent based on skills and experience by hiding information such as race, gender, or ethnicity. Teams can also generate reports in order to gain diversity insights, view available roles, and measure the company’s performance against competitors.

What a great tool for sourcing

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

Overall, it is my go-to sourcing tool!

Pros
The power filters are a great feature, I even had the team create custom power filters for me which was a great thing to have done to assist with my daily searches. I use the messaging tool constantly for drip campaigns. The github search is awesome looking for devs

Cons
The AI sourcing can be improved with better matches

The Evolution of a Great Talent Sourcing Tool

Used weekly for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

I have used SeekOut as a tool to augment information about target talent audiences. SeekOut's ability to aggregate social data has been a game-changer. SeekOut Expert has been a valuable addition to its offering. SeekOut insights have been valuable in terms of visualizing information that illustrates trends that TA leadership values. Finally, SeekOut's ability to integrate with our CRM has been extremely valuable.

Pros
SeekOut is a product that has done their background research on what the talent acquisition marketplace needed. They listened and made the improvements the market requested. Now as the organization has evolved, SeekOut is not anticipating and leading in innovation in this key software segment. Specifically, what I like about SeekOut is the ability to aggregate data from Linkedin Public Profiles with other social sites like GitHub. I am particularly enjoying the SeekOut expert and other features that facilitate original research on target talent.

Cons
I am skeptical about the ability of AI-based on the limited information contained on a LinkedIn public profile to be robust enough to really make a positive impact. The beauty of AI is its ability to process big data and make recommendations based on parsing lots of information. Also, I find there are about 15-20% fewer people with public LinkedIn profiles that are found on LinkedIn's own platforms. Finding a way to add those missing profiles would be an added addition. Finally, increasing the number of home email addresses fro the target talent is an ongoing challenge. While improvements are made, this might be an area where AI can shine.

Overall, SeekOut has allowed me to be more strategic in my sourcing efforts and has improved my relationships with hiring managers.

Pros
SeekOut's sourcing solution is by far the best in the industry. On top of providing an exceptional product, they not only listen to my suggestions but actually implement them into the product!

Cons
I wish there was a male diversity filter similar to women.

Great tool that speads up the identification of candidates!

Pros
I love the fact that you can source for candidates from multiple platforms / networks, manage projects, find contact details and create messaging campaigns on one unique tool. The diversity filter is great too. The insights are very helpful.

Cons
Unfortunately, messaging campaigns are independent from the projects so you have to manually update the statuses of your candidates when they respond. Xing.com and Viadeo.fr are not supported (FR and DE professional networks) It seems like Seekout finds less candidates than x-ray searching.

Relatively New SeekOut User Experience

Used daily for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

I am not a manager or an executive. I am very much a tactical recruiter and it has been quite easy to incorporate SeekOut in my daily recruiting process. Additionally, the SeekOut team is accessible and friendly. I can call or I can email anytime. I get responses back quickly/usually within same day. When I started using SeekOut, the manager I worked with did as much training as I needed and answered all of my annoying questions. Some organizations are too big to be able to provide that kind of customer dedication now

Pros
I don't think there is just one aspect that I appreciate most about SeekOut which is why I like it and why it has become a "go-to" tool in my recruiting portfolio. It provides me with options. SeekOut is one source that has a lot of sources in one and it is highly user-friendly. It also automates and therefore reduces a lot of the time I spend "meta-sourcing" meaning activities like searching for contact information for a prospect or candidate's profile.

Cons
Right now, I use the first two tabs the most. I think that 3rd tab has a lot of potential and would love to see that somehow become a more robust component within SeekOut. I would like the additional option of the SeekOut Robot to not only be tied to Project folders in order to use it. I like to do targeted and general searches and feel like SeekOut Robot is better suited for targeted or more specialized searches.
