Introducing SeekOut Assist, ChatGPT for Recruiters

Apr 5, 2023

New generative AI technology will revolutionize how recruiters find and engage candidates  SeekOut , the leading Talent Intelligence Platform, today announced the availability of SeekOut Assist, a new generative AI technology based on OpenAI’s GPT that will revolutionize how recruiters find and engage candidates. The new capabilities will empower recruiting teams to go from a job description to initial contact with qualified candidates in a matter of moments. “Our customers are under immense pressure to hire the right candidates quickly,” said Claire Fang, Chief Product Officer at SeekOut. “SeekOut Assist will help recruiters work faster and smarter, with more time to focus on the human side of recruiting.” Using a Job Description to Create a List of Qualified Candidates Recruiters spend countless hours searching for candidates that meet the requirements of an open role. SeekOut Assist works with recruiters to surface qualified candidates in minutes instead of hours. A recruiter can simply paste a job description, and SeekOut generates a list of the most qualified candidates for that role. Related Posts Apr 5, 2023 This simple workflow is powered by AI. SeekOut Assist uses GPT technology to automatically break down a job description into search criteria like job title, required skills, and preferred skills. It then analyzes over 800 million profiles in SeekOut’s talent database to find the best match. The search criteria are transparent, explainable, and can be further fine-tuned by a recruiter. Keeping the human in complete control while leveraging AI to improve the speed and quality of the search drastically. “SeekOut is definitely on the cutting edge when it comes to leveraging ChatGPT’s API, using it to effectively understand job descriptions and generate helpful recommendations for required and preferred matching criteria, as well as applying the most thoughtful approach to assistive candidate outreach that I’ve seen so far,” said Glen Cathey, Senior Vice President and Consulting Principal of Talent Advisory and Digital Strategy at Randstad. “Importantly, in both cases, users have total control with the ability to edit, configure, and refine criteria to ensure they are getting the results and output they are looking for.” Generating Personalized Outreach Messages at Scale Many outreach emails today are ignored by candidates. The best recruiters research the candidate and craft a highly personalized message to increase response rates. SeekOut Assist generates a personalized message to the candidate based on their unique qualifications for the role. SeekOut Assist analyzes the information in each candidate’s SeekOut profile—including skills and experiences. SeekOut Assist uses both the candidate profile and job description to write a personalized outreach message to the candidate, improving the chances of a response. The interface includes options for the recruiter to customize further and control. Freeing up valuable time for the recruiter to spend building relationships with quality candidates.
