Setting up the Jobvite Integration

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

On the Integrations page, click + Add a Connection. 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 Rediscovery. Click Confirm Choices to continue to the next step.

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

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. If you see a successful verification message, click Next.

Note: If you're also using the Jobvite Export integration, you'll be prompted to test your export integration during this step as well.

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.

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.

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.

Matching

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.
