Monster® Joins the Social Jobs Partnership, Making Monster Jobs Available in Facebook App for Job Hunters
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Monster®, the worldwide leader in successfully connecting people to job opportunities and the flagship brand of Monster Worldwide (NYS: 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:
View Monster Jobs from more than 400,000 Monster customers
Click on a Monster job listing and be sent to Monster.com to apply immediately
View military-friendly and veterans jobs from Monster and Military.com
Use BeKnown to see how they're connected to the jobs they want
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.
