THE RECESSION AND KEY DATA

Monster.com has maintained a level financial sheet during the economic recession, and since many other companies have laid off employees, job seekers have come more to the main site. In the last quarter, the $250M of revenue was “in line with expectations” set early in the recession, according to our CEO, despite a 4% sequential decrease. Monster should be growing in the near future, not only because of the new career-focused communities like InsideTech but because of a new implementation of the Trovix AI job search analysis, which will help job seekers find “more relevant, targeted job postings.”
