Once, in a world far, far away (i.e., the 1990s), Monster beat its chest and claimed to be the biggest and best source for online jobs in the world, bar none. Then, last week, Monster – diminished, no longer for sale, and facing significant declines in revenue – once again beat its chest and said that it would be number one, again. Per Sal Iannuzzi, CEO President: „This is disruptive to every one of our competitors.”

So what does disruption look like? Well, kind of like what Monster’s competitors are already doing:

  •  Increase the number of jobs on Monster by tenfold
  • Aggregate content on candidates from everywhere on the web (no doubt through recent acquisition TalentBin) – and increase the number of candidates
  • Move to cloud-based solutions for employers
  • Add PPC
