When Dean DaCosta tells us to pay attention to a recruiting tool, we listen.  And so should you.  In this video review, we take a look at SeekOut.io a product that Dean looked at last year and is building a lot of momentum.  We have had a chance to look inside and all reports are good to go.

Today we’re bringing you the details about an amazing new tool called SeekOut. It’s new to the scene; in fact, it was just rolled out in 2017. However, don’t let this make you hesitate. At already 103 million people and counting it’s ready for sourcing.  Currently, it pulls in tons of data from public web sources, particularly LinkedIn.

So what’s great about SeekOut?

The most important and best feature we feel that this tool offers is their huge variety of search features. Of course, they include all the big ones: keywords, diversity, location, current & past companies, titles, skills, schools, and degrees. From there you can get into the nitty-gritty as well. They offer searches for everything from years worked at a company, company size, certificates they’ve earned, groups they’re a part of, their interests, even honor awards they’ve received. If you might be looking for it, it’s most likely it’s going to be on there.

Find Your Candidates, And Then Contact Them

You run a search picking as many or as few of these search options as you would like. Once you run a search you have multiple options to save, use, and export the data. These include getting emails for the candidates you find, exporting the page to Excel, or adding the page to a project. The projects are within the SeekOut tool itself, to help you sort and organize your results and export more information like the emails you find to Excel.

The export to Excel option gives you a huge amount of data, all sorted into labeled and organized rows for you. This includes direct links to their LinkedIn profiles. This can be crucial for contacting them; on the off chance the tool isn’t able to find an email address. In the search we ran, we were able to find emails for nearly everyone. Often they even included a work and a personal email. Eventually, SeekOut is adding more social profiles, AI candidate recommendations, and the latest is the Chrome Extension, the SeekOut Sourcing Assistant.

If you’re looking to pinpoint your recruits, this tool is absolutely worth checking out! Seekout offers 3 different levels of pricing and support. They also have a 14 Day Free Trial so you can see if it’s the tool you’ve been waiting for.
