Find a Monster Job in Malaysia!

Monster Malaysia was a huge hit back in England and always a great resource when looking for jobs. As the Internet took off job sites got larger and larger and they were certainly far easier to use than browsing the newspaper. You can’t search the newspaper, or look for jobs in specific areas for example.

In Europe it’s actually the largest career site with over 13 million resumes and a new CV is submitted every 12 seconds!

Anyway in January this year Monster has launched the Malaysian version at and straight out with some positions from big companies such as HSBC, Tyco, Maxis, Mitsubishi and more. As they already have a pretty strong global brand in the job market it’s not too difficult for them to move into Malaysia.

I do wonder how they will compete against Jobstreet and JobsDB which are already well established here and have a strong brand amongst local job seekers.

Seen as though Monster is here now it’s good to know about it and there’s no harm in using multiple sites to increase your chance of finding a suitable job.

There aren’t that many jobs on Monster Malaysia right now, but it’s fairly new so it’ll take a while to build up some momentum.

I’ll be keeping an eye on it anyhow!

    Monster seem ok but i doubt it will actually be able to challenge Jobstreet as a dominant figure in this area. Been looking for jobs online via Jobstreet and Googling for a long time now, but the funny thing is, I picked up the newspaper the other day and got a job.

    ironic, no?

    Well, Monster can definitely leverage its international network and just add simple claims that all uploaded resumes can be accessed throughout the world by employers.

    An opportunity to work overseas? That would just blow jobstreet etc. away.

    Somehow I guess that more and more recruitment firms are blooming like mushrooms…

    I still find that there are a lot of dodgy jobs being advertised in this job-seeking-web-portals as compared to the STAR Recruitment on Saturdays

    Dabido: Yah yah, keep boasting 😛

    kevin: It’ll be interesting to see for sure, strangely the quality jobs are often in the newspapers. It’s really expensive to advertise in there so only the big players with decent jobs go in.

    homosexicle: If that becomes the case it would definitely become a hot site.

    grace: Yah it’s a hot market, Monster has been around a long time though they are just new here. Agree, newspaper job sections are still quality.
