Setting up the Bullhorn Integration

Accessing Integrations

Click your name at the bottom left of the SeekOut dashboard, then select Integrations.

Click your name at the bottom left of the SeekOut dashboard and select Integrations to open the integrations page.

Note: Don't see the Integrations option in your menu? Contact your Customer Success Manager or support@seekout.com and ask to enable ATS integrations for your org.

On the Integrations page, click + Add a Connection to open the list of applicant tracking systems. If you've set up an integration with SeekOut before, your current integrations will be listed on this page. Click the plus sign + at the top of the page to open the ATS list.

If you already have an integration set up, you can add a new integration by clicking the plus sign at the top of the Integrations page.

Connecting to Bullhorn

On the Integrations page, click + Add a Connection. Locate Bullhorn from the list of integrations and click the Connect button.

On the Capabilities tab, check the box next to Export. Check Export only as Prospects if you choose not to export candidates to job pools in your ATS. Click Confirm Choices to continue to the next step.

On the Credentials tab, click Submit to save your credentials, then click Next.

On the Verify tab, click Authenticate. This will take you to your Bullhorn login page. After logging in, you'll be redirected back to SeekOut's integration page. You'll need to do one of the following depending on the option you selected on the Capabilities tab.

  1. If you selected Export only as Prospects on the Capabilities tab, click Verify. SeekOut will send a test candidate to your ATS as a prospect.

  2. If you did not select Export only as Prospects on the Capabilities tab, then select an option from the jobs dropdown list and click Verify. SeekOut will send a test candidate to the job you selected.

When successful, Bullhorn 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.

Authentication

Bullhorn uses OAuth and requires you to authenticate your connection before exporting for the first time.

Authenticate while on a Search page

While on a search page, click the three-dot menu button on the candidate profile. Click Authenticate with Bullhorn and login to your Bullhorn account. Authentication will automatically happen after you login. Once you're done, the Authenticate with Bullhorn option will change to Export to Bullhorn.

Authenticate from within a Project

While in a SeekOut project and click Export at the top right of your candidates. Click Authenticate with Bullhorn and login to your Bullhorn account. Authentication will automatically happen after you login. Once you're done, the Authenticate with Bullhorn option will change to Export to Bullhorn.

Exporting from SeekOut to Bullhorn

To export all candidates in a project to Bullhorn, go to your SeekOut project, click the Export icon and choose Export All to Bullhorn.

Note 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 Bullhorn . With both methods, clicking Export to Bullhorn will cause a pop-up window will appear.

Choose if you want to export profiles as Prospects or as Candidates. Prospects will not be attached to a job, whereas Candidates will be exported to a chosen job in Bullhorn.

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 Bullhorn. If successful, you will see a confirmation pop-up message that says "Export Complete."

Additional Notes

Duplicate Profiles

By default, SeekOut will not transmit profiles that have already been successfully exported. Candidates that have been exported will display a confirmation icon and the name of your ATS in their SeekOut profile.

Check the box Include previously exported candidate(s) if you're exporting the same candidates to your ATS again.

Note: Bullhorn does not check for duplicate profiles when you export. If you successfully export the same prospect twice, an additional profile will be created in Bullhorn. When viewing duplicate profiles in your ATS, you may be prompted by Bullhorn to merge the profiles together.
