The Inbound Talent feature pulls open jobs and applicants from your ATS, allowing SeekOut to display, filter, enrich, and rank prospects for each job requisition.

How does it work?

When Inbound Talent is enabled for your account, you can access it from the tab on the left side of the SeekOut dashboard.


This tab lists your job requisitions from your ATS. Use the search field at the top right to filter requisitions by job title or ID.


Click on a job to start building an AI search for that requisition.


Searching with Inbound Talent takes three steps:

  1. Set your required qualifications.
  2. Set your preferred qualifications.
  3. Click View Applicants and review your matches.

Required Qualifications

Required qualifications are skills or attributes that the applicant must have in order to be considered a match. 


If two skills are entered on the same line, they are treated like an OR statement, meaning an applicant can have one skill or the other (see Skill #1 above). If skills are entered on multiple lines, the applicant must have both Skill #1 and Skill #2 to be considered a match. 

The Years of Experience slider and Degree fields can also be filled out here. If an applicant doesn't meet these requirements, they will be moved to the Incomplete Match group.

As you add required qualifications, notice how the bar graph to the right representing the talent pool updates in real time.


Preferred Qualifications

Preferred qualifications are used to rank your Matched applicants. Matches who fulfill all of these requirements will be placed at the top of the list, while Matches who don't will be placed lower on the list. 


View Applicants

When you're done building your search, click the View Applicants button at the top right to display Matched applicants.

Matched profiles are enriched with information from your ATS, including email, phone number, resume, recruiter, application stage, and more.


Click View Match Score to see how an applicant matches up to your required and preferred skills. Use the Move to Stage button to change the applicant's stage. This change will be reflected in your ATS within 15 minutes.
