As of today, Scouted has joined forces with Recruiter.com, a leading global AI and video interview platform. This is a momentous occasion for the Scouted team, and for me personally, and I am thrilled to be able to (finally) share this acquisition news with you.
From day one, I’ve fundamentally believed that a person’s first, second, or even third job can change the entire trajectory of their career. This core concept was the catalyst for Scouted’s inception, and, years later, continues to serve as the driving force behind our mission to build a talent ecosystem that unlocks human potential.
In 2015, Scouted opened our doors to an initial cohort of 76 job seekers and 10 partner companies. Their user experience was a far cry from the tech-enabled video interview platform and hiring marketplace that our tens of thousands of candidates and hundreds of partner firms have access to today.
Looking back on the growth of Scouted and the community that we’ve built, what’s most rewarding is the overwhelming feedback that we receive from our candidates — a reminder that the work we’re doing to help people find meaningful jobs can have a profound impact on their lives.
And as I reflect on the past year’s events, I am reminded of the importance of a company like Scouted — the critical nature of a platform and community that provides space for job seekers to share their stories beyond how they look on paper. Because really, it’s quite simple: you are more than your resume.
That’s why we are so excited to be joining Recruiter.com.
With a broader platform and extensive resources now powering us, the combined strength of our two companies will unlock an industry-leading recruiting experience for candidates and employers alike.
As we continue to deepen our relationship with the Recruiter.com team, we’ll continue to update you on the new and exciting ways we will help you succeed in your job or talent search.
Thank you for your ongoing support of the Scouted team, and of me, throughout this wild, entrepreneurial journey.
Here’s to our next chapter, together.
Co-founder & CEO, Scouted
