SeekOut launched two new features — SeekOut Assist and Pipeline Insights — designed to help talent acquisition teams improve their efficiency and recruiting results.
GPT-powered SeekOut Assist helps recruiters move from job description to contact with matching candidates. (The product was initially unveiled in April and has been undergoing a limited customer test since.) Pipeline Insights offers provides visualizations for TA teams and leaders with an eye toward improving their pipeline’s efficiency.
With the copy and paste of a job description, SeekOut Assist provides recruiters with a set of qualified candidates and the ability to contact them. The feature also generates a personalized message to each candidate, which highlights respective experiences and qualifications. Recruiters can edit the messages to match their own voice.
The system uses GPT technology to break down job descriptions into search criteria such as job title, required skills and preferred skills. It then analyzes over 800 million profiles in SeekOut’s talent database to find the best matches. SeekOut said its search criteria are transparent, explainable and can be further fine-tuned by recruiters.
While talent acquisition teams take increasing advantage of data and analytics practices, SeekOut believes many continue to rely on a blend of intuition, siloed data and candidate feedback to analyze their pipeline. Pipeline Insights puts appropriate data into the hands of TA without the need for advanced skills in data, analytics or visualization.
Pipeline Insights provides a one-stop shop for recruiters to look across their active desk to identify actions that will drive immediate results, SeekOut said. The tools equip recruiting managers with a tailored view that helps them track their team’s progress, identify areas where individuals need help, and guide leadership discussions with key stakeholders, including hiring managers and executives.
“The capabilities we are introducing today leverage the latest advances in AI to simplify and automate tasks for recruiters, so they can spend their time on what humans do best: engaging in one-on-one conversations,” said co-founder and CEO Anoop Gupta. Despite using advanced technology, the company’s approach remains human-driven and AI-assisted, “and not the other way around.” Recruiters have visibility into the AI’s choices and can modify its suggestions when they wish, he added.
