Guess which software is back with another update? Yes, we’re talking about Seekout. And in case it wasn’t your favorite tool for sourcing talent already, this update is about to change your mind.
We’re not talking about an ordinary update here. The folks at Seekout just dropped a bombshell of an update on us by adding 150 million new profiles to their database. One hundred and fifty million!
With the tally for total profiles coming out to 530 million now, it’s a safe bet to say that your next favorite candidate is in there somewhere. The only thing that remains is filtering through all those profiles to find the ones that can make a difference for you and your clients. The 2021 update has you covered with that too.

Now there’s a ton more data for every profile. The team has updated the profiles to reflect the most up-to-date information and added a bunch of extra details on top of it.
For example, if you look at a developer with an active GitHub presence, you’ll see all their highlights without opening any tabs or clicking any links. It shows below the rest of their usual details. And you’re going to see these a lot more now as there are 4 million new Coder Score verified software engineers in the database!
That’s not all, though. Now you get 20% more African-American, 38% more female, and 58% more candidates with a security clearance. Not to mention the expert prominence tracker, a nifty feature that lets you see how many papers someone was the first or last author on. This way you know these people were major contributors to those projects.
So if any of those parameters are important to you, you can create a quick boolean string and let the enhanced search algorithms do all the sifting for you.
