Overall Satisfaction with SeekOut

Recruiting Passive Talent
  • ATS Sourcing
  • URG/ Diversity Hiring filters
  • Github profile extraction
  • In some cases - profiles are not updated in SeekOut - there is a misalignment in Profiles on SeekOut and LinkedIn
  • Opening multiple SeekOut windows is a Hassle - need to login on to another tab every time to open in new tab.
  • Diversity Sourcing Streamlining
  • AI Insights allows us to replicate our sourcing practices
  • Project Insights under Projects is great - lets you summarise on searches, collate, build and enhance keywords searches
  • Sourcing from Open source platforms like GitHub
There has been training sessions, constant follow ups - I feel they are open to feedback andI believe all the above inputs might be considered to improvise the current version.
Too early to comment on this from my end.

Do you think SeekOut delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with SeekOut's feature set?

Yes

Did SeekOut live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of SeekOut go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy SeekOut again?

Yes

  • Complex Searches/ Booleans gives complex results - consumes time
  • Streamlining search takes time - Keeping the search simple gets desired profiles through the use of Inbuilt fields in Seekout
  • Creating Projects and adding candidates are seamless
  • Project Insights under Projects is great - lets you summarise on searches, collate, build and enhance keywords searches
  • The candidate reachout feature in Projects is pretty good - functionalities like “Insert fields”, multiple communication channels(Email, Ismail, call, text)AI matching feature is good - 2/5 profiles were relevant based on Sourced profiles
  • Campaigning could be effective but I see a long wait time to execute the steps - maybe it is intended to be so and I am missing out on something; but this may slow down the TAT.

Key Issues
  • In some cases - profiles are not updated in Seekout - there is a misalignment in Profiles on seekout and LinkedIn - eg., https://www.linkedin.com/in/amolbhure/ - This shouldn’t be the case when main source of the profiles for Seekout is Linkedin - maybe this is few, but important.
  • Opening multiple Seekout windows is a Hassle - need to login on another tab every time to open in new tab.
