Montreal's Standout Jobs acquired

Posted by Rob Lewis

Montreal-based social recuiting site Standout Jobs has been acquired according to blog post written by co-founder Ben Yoskovitz:

Around 3 years ago I started Standout Jobs with two great guys – Fred Ngo and Austin Hill. We raised money, built a great product, hired an incredible team and worked to build a business. Today I’m very pleased to announce that we’ve sold Standout Jobs.

I can’t name the acquirer at this point in time. I can tell you that I’m very excited to see what they do with Standout Jobs, because I fundamentally believe what we built and the vision we pushed will be standards in the recruitment industry for years to come. Companies that ignore their employer brands and don’t create a quality, interactive, candidate-centric hub on the Web for recruitment will lose.

In January of 2008, Standout Jobs demoed at DEMO 08 and then followed that up with a $2 Million raise from iNovia Capital and Montreal Start Up.

Looks like Yoskovitz may have took some of his own advice on Standout Jobs - in February 2009 he wrote a blog post titled The Art and Science of the Small Exit.

According to his blog post today, we should look out for Yoskovitz's next move as he mentions that he is working on a couple of new projects already.
