Covey helps teams focus on the best candidates in their hiring pipeline with plain-language AI resume screening and outreach.

Covey’s integration with Greenhouse Recruiting allows teams to leverage Covey’s generative AI directly in their ATS using a Chrome extension.  With the integration, customers can build intelligent bots that evaluate candidates in the exact way that they do, automatically in Greenhouse.

Set up Covey Chrome Extension

The Covey Chrome extension can be downloaded directly from the Chrome Web Store: Extension link

Use the Covey integration with Greenhouse Recruiting

With the integration enabled, users will be able to view Greenhouse data within Covey and will also be able to have actions within Covey sync to Greenhouse.

For example, if recruiter reaches out to a candidate using Covey, when the candidate responds showing interest, the recruiter will then mark the candidate as interested in Covey.
If a candidate does not already exist in Greenhouse, a new one will be created on behalf of the acting user with Covey Sourced as the source, the acting user credited as the referrer, and the Covey tag added.

Once the candidate and application are created in Greenhouse, they’ll be synced back into Covey and reflected in the UI. From the list view, a Greenhouse badge signifies that the candidate exists in Greenhouse Recruiting.

From the candidate profile, a card will show relevant Greenhouse application information associated with the candidate such as the role they’re being considered for, the status of the application, and the stage of the application.

Candidates will also be synced into Greenhouse when messages are sent or received via Covey. For those using Covey Scout Inbound, users can view and take action on applications via Covey.
