Today we cover SeekOut, an AI-powered search engine built for recruiters and sourcers.
“Providing customers a competitive edge in recruiting hard-to-find and diverse talent for Digital Transformation”
“We built SeekOut after feeling the pain of trying to hire passive candidates in a competitive market. After experiencing the clunky tools, expensive licenses and terrible response rates, we knew we could do better. Our background working in search, messaging, machine learning/AI and natural language processing gives us a unique perspective in the space. SeekOut was built for sourcers, not to replace them, and we’re confident you’ll find it the most recruiter-friendly tool on the market.”
Listen in on what our panelists have to say.
This event is part of the “Let’s Talk Recruiting” series where a panel of recruiting practitioners get together online and have a conversation on a variety of topics related to corporate recruiting.
