SeekOut Rolls Out GPT-Powered Assist, New Pipeline Insights


SeekOut launched two new features intended to help recruiters improve their results.

The first, GPT-powered SeekOut Assist, helps recruiters move quickly from job description to initial contact with matching candidates. (SeekOut Assist was initially unveiled in April and has been undergoing a limited customer test since.) The second, Pipeline Insights, offers analytics capabilities to provide visualizations for recruiters and talent acquisition leaders with an eye toward improving the candidate pipeline’s efficiency.

With the copy and paste of a job description, SeekOut Assist provides recruiters with a set of qualified candidates and the ability to contact them. The feature also generates a personalized message to each candidate that highlights respective experiences and qualifications, which recruiters can edit to match their own voice.

The system uses GPT technology to break down job descriptions into search criteria such as job title, required skills and preferred skills. It then analyzes over 800 million profiles in SeekOut’s talent database to find the best matches. SeekOut said the search criteria it uses are transparent, explainable and can be further fine-tuned by recruiters.

While talent acquisition teams take increasing advantage of data and analytics practices, SeekOut believes many continue to rely on a blend of intuition, siloed  data and candidate feedback to analyze their pipeline. Pipeline Insights puts appropriate data directly into the hands of TA without the need for advanced skills in data, analytics or visualization.

Pipeline Insights provides a one-stop shop for recruiters to look across their active desk to identify actions that will drive immediate results, SeekOut said. The tools equip recruiting managers with a tailored view that helps track their team’s progress, identify areas where individuals need help, and guide leadership discussions with stakeholders including hiring managers and executives.  

“The capabilities we are introducing today leverage the latest advances in AI to simplify and automate tasks for recruiters, so they can spend their time on what humans do best: engaging in one-on-one conversations,” said co-founder and CEO Anoop Gupta. Despite using advanced technology, he said, the company’s approach remains human-driven and AI-assisted, “and not the other way around.” Recruiters have visibility into the AI’s choices and can modify its suggestions when they wish, he added.
