At the 2008 Annual SHRM Conference, Monster® today announced availability of a self-service capability that will make using its unique Career Ad Network (CAN) an easier, more automated experience. Now also available via Monster’s self-service eCommerce channel, CAN helps employers target optimal talent by transforming traditional job postings into dynamic ads across diverse affiliated network websites, reaching a broader set of potential candidates where they live and transact online. In addition, stemming from strong success in the U.S., CAN will soon be available to Canadian-based employers. Monster is the leading global online careers and recruitment resource and flagship brand of Monster Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: MNST).

It's now even easier to harness the power of this tool as employers can simply opt-in with just a click of a button.

"Career Ad Network allows employers to cast a wider net by offering the advantage of reaching consumers across the web, automatically transforming Monster job ads into banner ads and intelligently targeting them to relevant candidates," said Darko Dejanovic, Global CIO and Head of Product for Monster. "It's now even easier to harness the power of this tool as employers can simply opt-in with just a click of a button."

Employers across a wide variety of industries, including IT, retail, finance and food services have seen compelling results utilizing CAN. On average when compared to basic job postings, companies using CAN for 30 days have seen:*

50 percent more job views; 100 percent more applicants; and 100 percent more job response clicks. * Monster Internal Data 2008

Launched by Monster in the spring of 2007, CAN is capable of dynamic targeting, driven by a sophisticated set of algorithms that factor in job title, occupational category and location, among other key matching factors. Employers can track value with the ability to monitor the number of job views and job response.

"The power of CAN is not only realized in attracting passive candidates, but in employer branding as well," added Dejanovic. "By turning job ads into relevant, targeted banner ads placed throughout the web, employers further extend their brand positioning with consumers."
