Overall Satisfaction with SeekOut

We are using SeekOut to source candidates for our open roles at our company beyond LinkedIn as it pulls candidates to reach out to from other social networks. As a bonus, it also shows you contact info for them such as phone and email addresses for prospective candidates so you can reach out beyond the use of InMail from LinkedIn.
  • Shares contact info
  • Shows candidates from all over the internet
  • Has areas used for diversity searches
  • Does not pull its data quick enough - candidate profiles can be often outdated by several months when you click on them for more info
  • Emails are not always correct and you can reach out to the wrong person
  • The emailing out function from the product is very basic and does not work as well as other tools I have used.
  • Diversity search
  • Collecting contact info - quicker response time
  • Better recruiter experience internally
When we contacted support at SeekOut, they have been responsive, helpful, and receptive to feedback so much that, invited me to talk to the team about some issues I was seeing in terms of profiles being outdated. I appreciate the good customer service and attention to detail on their behalf.
SeekOut is easy to use and provides crucial contact info such as phone numbers and emails for candidates, as every recruiter is using Linkedin Recruiter to contact candidates right now in this crazy hiring market. It is easy to put on diversity filters. It has insights into the market depending upon your search such as how many candidates are in the Bay Area, has certain degrees, etc.

Do you think SeekOut delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with SeekOut's feature set?


Did SeekOut live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of SeekOut go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy SeekOut again?


SeekOut works really well to perform sourcing searches from all over the internet with capabilities to get granular and also run diversity searches. It is best used with other tools, and I would not suggest using it along with no other sourcing/recruiting tools since it does have its drawbacks.
