Overall Satisfaction with SeekOut

I use SeekOut to build a more diverse pipeline of candidates and finding passive candidates for harder to fill roles. Utilizing messaging to start campaigns has been a great way to customize and personalize my messaging from the platform. It's important for our pipelines to meet specific guidelines and SeekOut is helping to do that by surfacing candidates from underrepresented communities.
  • Surfacing diverse candidates.
  • Search capabilities.
  • Campaign management.
  • Blind mode!
  • LinkedIn integration.
  • AI matching sometimes can not work as well as I hope.
  • More insights and data showcased.
  • Diversifying pipelines.
  • Mitigating bias.
  • More time spent in the platform, manual effort, have to play with filters a lot.
Support is always there - in the chat - very responsive and helpful, kind. Provide an understanding of what they're doing and why they actioned the way they did.
I demo'd Talenya, which I thought was pretty good as well, it was a little more simplified but the exact same product. However, Seekout had more features and it was a tool that I've heard a lot more about from outside colleagues and organizations.

Do you think SeekOut delivers good value for the price?

SeekOut is definitely suited for organizations looking to uncover talent from diverse backgrounds and not having to spend all your time in LinkedIn or Job Boards. Specifically keeping bias out of the rooms with hiring managers is key and this tool does such a great job of that. I'd say the tool isn't suited for orgs just looking to source or browse resumes. SeekOut does require effort so if your just looking for a Job Board this isn't for you.
