SeekOut is a passive candidate sourcing tool that allows you to easily move candidate records from SeekOut into Greenhouse Recruiting.

With the SeekOut integration, you can export candidate data from SeekOut and turn it into Greenhouse Recruiting candidate profiles, complete with contact information and work/education history. SeekOut candidate data can be sent to Greenhouse Recruiting as prospects or they can be attached to an existing job.

Create an Ingestion API key for the SeekOut integration

To integrate with SeekOut, you'll need to create an Ingestion API key and provide it to SeekOut.

Follow the steps in this article for more information on creating an Ingestion API key. Once the key is created, provide it to SeekOut so they can set up the integration with Greenhouse Recruiting.

Send candidate records from SeekOut to Greenhouse Recruiting

Once the integration is configured, it's simple to move candidates from SeekOut into Greenhouse Recruiting.

From a SeekOut project, select the candidates you want to add to Greenhouse Recruiting by checking the box next to each candidate. Then click More… and choose Export to Greenhouse.

You will be asked to choose the Greenhouse job where these candidates should be added.

Select the job and click Export.

By default, SeekOut will not add a candidate to a job if they have already been added to that job, but if you want the same candidate sent again you can check Include previously exported candidates.

Within a few seconds, the candidates you have sourced in SeekOut will be visible in Greenhouse Recruiting.
