Monster®, the worldwide leader in successfully connecting people to job
opportunities and the flagship brand of Monster
Worldwide (NYSE: MWW), today announced its participation in
Facebook's new application for the Social
Jobs Partnership, a collaboration between the U.S. Department of
Labor, the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), the
Direct Employers Association (DE), the National Association of State
Workforce Agencies (NASWA) and Facebook. Monster brings its industry
leadership to Facebook's newly launched effort to aid the unemployed,
underemployed and transitioning veterans, now making jobs easily
available to millions of Facebook U.S. users within the new Social
Jobs Partnership app.
"Our participation in the Social Jobs Partnership is a continuation of
Monster's strategy to expand our social presence and extend the ability
for our customers and job seekers to connect to great opportunities,"
said Matthew Mund, Senior Vice President Product Management for Monster
Worldwide. "We're very excited to bring our unrivaled online recruitment
expertise to the Social Jobs Partnership app and join Facebook in their
effort to help get Americans back to work."
Monster's participation in Facebook's Social Jobs Initiative continues
its media-agnostic approach to sourcing candidates for jobs. Making
Monster jobs available within Facebook's Social Jobs app is a great
complement to BeKnown™,
Monster's professional networking app on Facebook. Once a Facebook user
sees a job of interest, they can use BeKnown to immediately see how
they're connected to that job through their extended network of BeKnown
connections and Facebook friends.
"Facebook is all about connecting people and we're thrilled to see
developers leveraging our platform to connect job seekers and
prospective employers," said Marne Levine, Facebook's Vice President for
Global Public Policy. "By allowing job seekers to view and share job
openings based on personalized criteria, like location and industry, the
Social Jobs Application builds on our broader effort to help people use
social media to find jobs in the US."
Both Monster and Military.com,
the largest community of military service men and women, veterans and
their families, will participate in the new Social Jobs Partnership app
along with other 3rd party providers.
With Monster's participation, Facebook users can now:
The Social Jobs Application can be found in the resources
section of the Social Jobs Partnership page. In addition to the app,
the Social Jobs Partnership page provides specialized resources designed
to help connect job seekers and employers using social networks.
