Monster.co.uk 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 www.monster.com.my 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.
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!
