Monster Helps Kick Start Your Job Search This Fall

Now that the school year is in full swing, Monster®, the worldwide leader in connecting people to job opportunities and the flagship brand of Monster Worldwide (NYSE: MWW), announces the launch of its latest eBook, “Monster’s Guide to Online Networking for College Students and New Grads.” The free networking guide highlights online networking for young people just starting their careers, which is just as crucial as carefully crafting a professional digital profile.

If you are planning to graduate this school year or if you just graduated, now is the time to take steps toward securing a job. The latest eBook is a collection of Monster's best advice on networking, protecting your online reputation, crafting a personal brand and using cutting-edge social networking technologies such as BeKnown, Monster’s professional networking app on Facebook.

“Hiring has always been done, at least in part, on the basis of reputation,” said Charles Purdy, Senior Editor at Monster. “And these days, tools provided by the Internet and social platforms empower all of us to create our own reputation in very effective ways. And for students, it’s important to keep in mind that the time to start building that reputation is now – if you start networking or trying to build an online reputation only when you need a job or need a favor, you’re too late.”

Professional networking is an essential element of a successful job search, especially for tech-savvy job seekers. However, many students and recent grads believe that they don’t yet have any valuable contacts to add to their network – this is one of the many myths we will dispel during this month’s #MWchat. Join Charles Purdy, Monster’s Senior Editor, Miriam Salpeter, Job Search Coach, Social Media Consultant ( www.keppiecareers.com) and co-author of 100 Conversations for Career Success and Heather Huhman, Career Expert ( http://comerecommended.com) on Thursday, September 13 at 6 pm EST for this month’s #MWchat - Myths, Realities, and Benefits of Networking for Young People! Visit the Monster Facebook page at http://mnstr.me/GT7hds or follow @MonsterCareers and the #MWChat hashtag on Twitter.

The “Monster Guide to Online Networking for College Students and New Grads” is available for download here.
