SeekOut integrates with Jobvite, allowing you to export candidate data from SeekOut and turn it into Jobvite candidate profiles complete with contact information and work/education history. Candidates are sent to Jobvite as prospects.
This article covers how to set up your integration, as well as how to export candidate info from SeekOut to Jobvite.
Before You Begin
- You'll need an API Key and a Secret Key from your Jobvite account. Jobvite support can help you with this.
- You must use the exact same email for SeekOut and Jobvite. These emails are case sensitive. If your emails don't match exactly, you will get an error message when you test the integration or attempt to export candidates.
See the article How can I change the email address I use to sign into SeekOut? for help changing your SeekOut login email to match your Jobvite login email.
Setting up the Jobvite Integration
Click your initials at the top right of the SeekOut dashboard, then select Integrations.
Don't see the Integrations option in your menu? Contact your Customer Success Manager or email@example.com and ask to enable ATS integrations for your org.
Connecting to Jobvite
On the Integrations page, click + Add a Connection. Locate Jobvite from the list of integrations and click the Connect button.
Note: If you have set up an integration previously, click the + next to the list of integrations at the top of the page to open the Add a Connection pop-up.
On the Capabilities tab, check the box next to Export. Click Confirm Choices to continue to the next step.
On the Credentials tab, enter your API Key and Secret Key.
Click Submit to save your credentials. SeekOut will automatically attempt to verify your connection. When successful, Jobvite will appear at the top of your Integrations page with a green check mark.
Removing the Integration
On the Integrations page, click the arrow next to a connected integration to Edit or Remove the integration from your SeekOut account.
Testing Your Integration
SeekOut automatically tests your integration after the first time you set it up. Click Send Test Candidate to export a test candidate to your ATS.
When successful, Jobvite will appear under the section My Organization's Integrations with the label "Connected." Test your integration again at any time by returning to the integrations page, clicking the three-dot menu next to the name, selecting Edit, and then click Test.
Exporting from SeekOut to Jobvite
Recommended: Export from a Project
To export all candidates in a project to Jobvite, go to your SeekOut project, click the Export icon and choose Export All to Jobvite.
Contact information such as email addresses and phone numbers will only appear in your export if you click Get Email for All and Get Phone for All before exporting.
Alternatively, you can export select candidates from SeekOut by clicking the box next to their profile, clicking Export and then selecting Export X to Jobvite . With both methods, clicking Export to Jobvite will cause a pop-up window will appear.
If your ATS does not support candidate profiles without email addresses, check the box Generate dummy email addresses for candidates. Click the Export button to export candidates to Jobvite. If successful, you will see a confirmation pop-up message that says "Export Complete."
