When you're trying to fill a role at a specific company, Position Magnet can help.

We've analyzed the skills and backgrounds of people in millions of positions to build a model of who gets hired into different roles. 

This lets us answer questions like:

  • Which schools do Google Engineers come from? 
  • Where do Nordstrom Business Analysts work prior to joining the company? 
  • How common are different skills among Accenture Consultants?

With Position Magnet, you can use these answers to bring the best candidates to the top. 

Here's how it works:

  1. Click on Position Magnet to expand it. 
  2. Enter the Company and Title of the role you want to fill.

SeekOut will pull the most appropriate candidates for this position to the top of the list. These are the candidates who share the most characteristics with people who are already in the Position Magnet role.

If you look at the filters on the left, you'll see icons next to companies, titles, skills, and more that are common among good candidates for the role you've targeted with Position Magnet. The more bars you see, the stronger the connection.

If you click on Magnet Details next to a candidate you'll see what parts of their background makes them a good match for the target position. And you'll see links to other people who have already made the move from the candidate's current position to the role you entered in Position Magnet.

You can enter keywords or Boolean to narrow down these results to target your exact candidate requirement. 

Position Magnet also works well if you're trying to hire the type of people your competitor (or another company) hires. Just use a role at that other company as the magnet.

Not all roles are available in Position Magnet. We need enough data to be able to build a model of what good candidates look like. If your role doesn't appear, try setting Position Magnet to a more common role, the same role at a larger company, or a similar role at a competitor.

Try it out and let us know what you find. If you have any questions or feedback, please let us know.
