Monster.com Launches New E-Commerce Channel 'Get Monster'
MAYNARD, Mass., Jun 5, 2001 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Already a pioneer in the field of online career management, Monster.com(R) is once again revolutionizing the customer service aspect of the industry. Monster.com, the leading global online careers site and flagship brand of TMP Worldwide Inc.(NASDAQ:TMPW), today announced the launch of "Get Monster" (http://get.monster.com), a brand new feature for employers, making the process of signing up with Monster.com, posting jobs, and finding the most talented employees nationwide even easier.
"Get Monster" enables employers to create an account and purchase jobs, resume access, and memberships online. Employers can also access Monster's product catalog that features statistics on Monster.com and online recruiting, a Monster.com buyer's guide, and links to other Monster products. With step-by-step instructions the service is easy to use and takes customers through the entire online process from researching products to making a purchase. The area is set-up as an online store, as employers can add to a "shopping cart" and are provided a summary of their purchases.
"Get Monster brings Monster.com's products and services to a whole new level. By leveraging the Internet's power as an online purchasing tool, we are able to offer employers around-the-clock customer service, and free up our sales reps to spend more time consulting with their clients," said Steve Pogorzelski, Group President, Sales, Marketing and Customer Relations, Monster.com. "This fast and easy to use new service is a digital extension of our sales force, that enables potential member companies to post jobs and access the job posting and resume database purchase options, all under the umbrella of the strong Monster.com brand name."
"Get Monster" gives employers real-time access to sign up and post jobs on Monster.com. Speed, 24/7 operations, and personalized service, are all aspects of "Get Monster" that make it an easy-to-use system, providing employers more time to manage their business, rather than spending hours looking for qualified employees.
