Data Import Process

After the integration is setup and passes validation, we will automatically start downloading, indexing, and matching your candidate and job data. Depending on the number of candidates and jobs, this can take several days.

Once the first full download is complete, the integration will periodically check your ATS and only download additional data when it detects a change. Depending on how many changes are detected, the update process can vary in length from a few minutes to several hours.

How to use Talent Rediscovery

Go to SeekOut search and select Your ATS on the Search page to view candidates from your applicant tracking system.

Your ATS has the same search functions that are available in the Public Profiles tab. Use keywords, Boolean, power filters, and diversity filters to refine your search. 

Filters and Profile Data in Your ATS 

The Your ATS tab has two additional features:  

  • A set of filters specific to your ATS (highlighted in purple below)¬†

  • The candidate's status, job application, resume, and contact information from your ATS (highlighted in orange below)

The Your ATS tab has a set of filters specific to your ATS (highlighted in purple below), and the candidate's status, job application, resume, and contact information from your applicant tracking system (highlighted in orange below)

ATS Filters (purple) 

These are filters that are only available when searching candidates from your applicant tracking system. The exact filters available will depend on the data SeekOut receives from your ATS. For example, if your organization does not have any candidates assigned to the Technical Phone Screen stage, then that filter will not be displayed in SeekOut. 

See the section Unique Filters below for a list of filters available to you.

Candidate ATS Data (orange) 

An overview of the candidate's data from your ATS. See the section Unique Profile Data below for a list of details you'll find here.

ATS Insights

SeekOut aggregates candidate data from your ATS and displays interactive charts for diversity, location, current/previous company, job title, and much more.

Hover your mouse over a row to see how many candidates share that data point and click on a row or use filters to refine your results even further. 

Print & Export Insights

Click Print to print the current page. Use your browser's printer settings to select how many pages of data you wish to print. 

Click Export to export the data on the current page to a spreadsheet. You can download it as an XLSX file or view it in Excel Online. The spreadsheet has information and charts (when applicable) for the following candidate data: 

  • Location¬†

  • Current Company¬†

  • Current Title¬†

  • Past Company¬†

  • Past Title¬†

  • Skills¬†

  • Years of Experience¬†

  • Years in Role¬†

  • School¬†

  • Degree¬†

  • Major¬†

  • Diversity¬†

  • Industry¬†

  • Company Size¬†

  • Other¬†

    • Certifications¬†

    • Languages¬†

    • Groups¬†

    • Interests¬†

    • Honors/Awards¬†


SeekOut uses the candidate's LinkedIn URL as the main identifier for matching their ATS profile to their SeekOut profile. If there is no LinkedIn URL found in the candidate's resume or job application, other pieces of information will be used to try to match the candidate including GitHub URLs, job history, education history, etc. 

When a profile isn't matched, SeekOut will not enrich it with additional info. The profile will appear without a LinkedIn URL in the Your ATS tab. Only info mirrored from the ATS (including the resume) will be shown in the profile.
