Monster Worldwide's history, mission and goals

Monster Worldwide, Inc., is a global leader in connecting people to jobs, wherever they are. For more than 20 years, Monster has helped people improve their lives with better jobs, and employers find the best talent. Today, the company offers services in more than 40 countries, providing some of the broadest, most sophisticated job seeking, career management, recruitment and talent management capabilities. Monster continues its pioneering work of transforming the recruiting industry with advanced technology using intelligent digital, social and mobile solutions, including our flagship website monster.com® and a vast array of products and services.

Monster pioneered the business of digital recruiting in 1994, and today we are the only online recruitment provider able to serve our customers on a truly global basis. In addition to our broad portfolio of global Web sites, Monster offers valuable online advertising space on category leading properties such as Military.com and Fastweb. These sites deliver a quality audience and the most sought-after consumer demographics to companies looking to showcase their brand to their target audience at key points in their life.

In 2014, Monster unveiled a new strategic approach to include job aggregation, and a deeper expansion into the small business market.

As we continue to seek strategic ways to expand our offerings to employers and seekers, we have taken steps to ensure that we have the processes, technology and infrastructure to deliver the highest level of service and support to our customers. We have deepened our focus on leveraging our multiple distribution channels to further extend our reach into local markets in the United States and beyond. This is evident through Monster's alliances with newspapers in several of the nation’s largest metropolitan markets including New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago and our expanded efforts in social media. These alliances support our commitment to expand the online recruitment market and allow us to serve a higher number of customers and job seekers more efficiently.
