As we work to get our economy back on the right track, President Obama has job placement high on his list. In fact, he is calling on America’s CEOs to share lessons learned and offer up their insight into how to accelerate job growth.
We couldn’t ignore a call to action from our fearless leader. In fact, just last week, our CEO, Sal Iannuzzi, took part in a White House forum on jobs and economic growth. Agreeing with President Obama, we at Monster believe that we have a responsibility to help in accelerating job creation in our country.
With so many Americas struggling just to make ends meet, we have taken on the initiative to get America back to work. We are hoping that others in our industry will join our efforts and together we can all roll up our sleeves and Keep America Working.
At Monster, we are doing all we can to bring together our customers who are seeking highly qualified candidates with job seekers who can fit their job openings. We’re introducing powerful new search tools that help seekers uncover jobs they might have missed before, and help employers find the best people for the jobs they have open now.
We have also joined forces with the Department of Labor to support the “Tools for America’s Job Seekers Challenge,” which connects workers with online career resources and offers businesses and other organizations an opportunity to showcase best products and services.
With the New Year quickly approaching, we hope that we can collaborate with President Obama’s team and our industry peers to rebuild our workforces across America.
