SeekOut update brings more social capabilities
As you may know, SeekOut is a great tool for making recruiting easier and more efficient. With its April 2018 update, SeekOut has added the ability to search through a variety of different social networks. We are a bit behind in getting this update published, and the team at Seekout have done even more building so stay tuned for that update as well.
When opening the site, all of the standard features remain the same. The new “Social Networks” feature appears as a top above the search bar.
- Choose a social network from a large selection of sites. Options include everything from Facebook and Instagram to AngelList and StackOverflow.
- Enter the keywords you wish to search for within your chosen social network.
- SeekOut pulls up a list of candidates matching your terms, with relevant information about each and a link to their profile on the social network you selected.
- You also easily add each person to a project, for easy access in later research.
This new feature makes SeekOut a key tool when doing social detective research about potential candidates. You can easily access the social profiles of people that appear to be a good fit for your needs, and from there learn more about them. It is also useful to use this tool in combination with another, in order to easily pull additional information from these social profiles.
With this version, SeekOut adds a lot of useful tools. However, there will be even more added to the Social Networks capabilities with the next update. These upcoming enhancements will bring the ability to easily locate contact information right to the search results within SeekOut. SeekOut is updating constantly so look out for more from us on the topic very soon
