Setting up the Jobvite Integration

Before You Begin

Note: Please contact your Customer Success Manager or our support team so we can coordinate your integration setup.

You will need to create a new account in Jobvite with READ permissions for the following:

  • Contacts

  • Candidates

  • Application APIs

You'll need an API Key and a Secret Key from your Jobvite account. Jobvite support can help you find or create these.

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

Review the requirements on the Permissions tab and click I'm ready.

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

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.

Connection Stages 


The ATS is connected and SeekOut is indexing candidates from Jobvite into SeekOut. This process takes days to complete, as Jobvite allows 10,000 API calls per day. Not all candidates will be visible in the Your ATS tab during the Indexing phase. 

Once the initial indexing has completed, the Jobvite integration will detect new records and records that have changes.

Connected / Start ATS Search 

Candidates have been indexed from Jobvite into SeekOut. Candidates can be viewed in the Your ATS tab. The index of Jobvite candidates is updated every four hours. 

Click Start ATS Search to go to the Your ATS tab. 

How to use Connect

Go to SeekOut search and select the Public Profile tab at the top of the page.

With ATS Connect enabled, profiles you find when searching in SeekOut will be enriched with additional information (highlighted in orange below) if the prospect is already in your ATS.

How Candidate Matching Works

SeekOut matches the profile data from your ATS with the up-to-date candidate profile in SeekOut. SeekOut will use ATS data you provide to do this match, including:

  • Name, company, title, or other fields

  • LinkedIn profile URL

  • PDF resume

We use this data only to find the correct person in SeekOut and note whether they are in your ATS or not. This information is not shared with any other SeekOut customer and is deleted once the match is attempted.

This matching process happens regularly (typically daily or weekly, depending on your ATS) so new candidates in your ATS are always matched with their profile in SeekOut.
