Let the Games Begin...Who Is Bigger Now?

Aug 31st 2010 at 3:04 PM


It's Official!

  Monster officially acquired HotJobs from Yahoo last week, paying $225 million for the third largest U.S. job     board, and setting in motion a new chapter in the race for market share with Careerbuilder.   Careerbuilder is still larger in terms of traffic with 21 million monthly unique visitors vs Monster's 10 million.  

But, as part of the acquisition of HotJobs, Monster negotiated a high profile sot on Yahoo's navigation bar which may even the playing field.

Should be interesting to watch this one.  Clients of both Monster and Careerbuilder seem to prefer one or the other...kind of like Coke and Pepsi. 

Spectra International -- Voted #1 Executive Search Firm in AZ -- has used both to help us analyze who/what are out in the market at any given time. We do prefer one over the other.  

So who is bigger now?  Who will be bigger a year from now?  My crystal ball says it will be "..............."

What do you think?  Let us hear from you on this change.

Well, I don't know, but I hope they both try to do something for the global finance :)
