SeekOut integrates with Jobvite, allowing you to export data from SeekOut and turn it into Jobvite contact profiles complete with contact information and work/education history.

This article covers how to set up your integration, as well as how to export candidate info from SeekOut to Jobvite.

Before You Begin

  • You'll need an API Key and a Secret Key from your Jobvite account. Ask Jobvite support for help creating your keys with the following permissions:

    • Get Jobs

    • Get Contacts

    • Get Application

    • Create Contact

    • Create Candidate

  • Candidates exported from SeekOut can be found in your ATS under the Contacts tab in Jobvite. Recruiters will need to have the Engage User permission enabled in Jobvite in order to access this tab.

  • You must use the exact same email for SeekOut and Jobvite. These emails are case sensitive. If your emails don't match exactly, you will get an error message when you test the integration or attempt to export candidates.

Setting up the Jobvite 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 Jobvite

Locate Jobvite from the list of integrations and click the Connect button.

Note: If you have set up an integration previously, click the + next to the list of integrations at the top of the page to open the Add a Connection pop-up.

On the Capabilities tab, check the box next to Export. Click Confirm Choices to continue to the next step.

On the Credentials tab, enter your API Key and Secret Key.

Click Submit to save your credentials. SeekOut will automatically attempt to verify your connection. When successful, Jobvite 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.

Testing Your Integration

SeekOut automatically tests your integration after the first time you set it up. Click Send Test Candidate to export a test to your ATS.

When successful, Jobvite will appear under the section My Organization's Integrations with the label "Connected." Test your integration again at any time by returning to the integrations page, clicking the three-dot menu next to the name, selecting Edit, and then click Test.

Exporting from SeekOut to Jobvite

Recommended: Export from a Project

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

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

If your ATS does not support profiles without email addresses, check the box Generate dummy email addresses for candidates. Click the Export button to export candidates to Jobvite. If successful, you will see a confirmation pop-up message that says "Export Complete."

  • Candidates exported from SeekOut can be found in your ATS under the Contacts tab in Jobvite. Recruiters will need to have the Engage User permission enabled in Jobvite in order to access this tab.

Additional Notes

What do dummy emails look like?

When you check the box "Generate dummy email addresses" before exporting to your ATS, then SeekOut will create email addresses and send them along with each candidate who doesn't already have an email associated with their SeekOut profile.

When you check the box 'Generate dummy email addresses' before exporting candidates, then SeekOut will create fake email addresses for any candidates who don't already have an email associated with their profile.

The email addresses generated by SeekOut will look similar to these examples:

  • no-email--352233856@seekout.example.com

  • no-email--828794187@seekout.example.com

  • no-email-1047659244@seekout.example.com
