Monsterboard’s wanhoop in beeld

Monster(board) doet nog altijd denken aan een online recruitment reus. Maar de praktijken die de site tegenwoordig bezigt om zieltjes te winnen doen eerder denken aan een ordinaire Nigeriaanse spammer. Dit kwam ik tegen toen ik de site van Monsterboard probeerde te verlaten:

Monsterboard blokkade

Mijn intentie was om weg te gaan, maar Monsterboard wil mij gevangen houden tot ik een e-mail adres heb achtergelaten.

Een ongekend domme actie van Monsterboard, hoewel het bedrijf ongetwijfeld kan claimen dat het lekker veel extra e-mail adressen ‘dankzij’ dit soort praktijken heeft verzameld. Maar dit zijn ganzenlever e-mail adressen, ontfutseld aan bezoekers die uitsluitend hun e-mail adres hebben ingevuld om weg te kunnen komen. Deze bezoekers hadden niet de intentie om hun e-mail adres af te staan. Goed voor je merk…

Aangezien ik er niet vanuit ga dat Monsterboard zo dom is, toont deze actie eerder de wanhoop van een in verval geraakte online recruitment reus dan van een overwogen actie.

    A special message from Sal Iannuzzi 
    Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer

     

    Please accept my sincere thanks for your business and support of Monster over the past year. Your commitment to us is truly appreciated, and I’d like to reinforce our commitment to you. 

    The last few years have been economically trying on many levels. Recruiting and staffing teams continue to do more with less. And in a world of tightened budgets and fewer resources, we recognize that you must make every dollar count. For that reason, we appreciate that you’ve decided to put your trust in us. And we’re confident that we will continue to deliver value for you. 

    Over the last year, we’ve invested heavily in performance for our customers. From bolstering our leading traffic position, to creating a distribution network to reach job seekers wherever they are online, we’ve taken steps to significantly improve the quantity and quality of talent we deliver to your opportunities. We’ve continued to grow our extensive member resume database, giving you access to both active and passive candidates. And, we’ve continued to invest in our 6Sense® search technology to help you efficiently pinpoint the right talent from all of these sources, and from your own candidate databases, as well. 

    We have also been working hard on a number of initiatives intended to strengthen Monster for the long term, and to further enhance the value we deliver to you. Over the coming months, we will share more with you about the new things we have planned. I’m confident that these initiatives will provide you with even better, more efficient ways to find, recruit and manage talent. 

    It’s an exciting time at Monster, and I sincerely hope we can continue to earn your business and your trust, in the new year. 

    If you are ever in need of reaching me or any of our leadership at Monster, please feel free to reach out to me directly at sal.iannuzzi@monster.com

    From everyone at Monster, thank you. May the new year bring hiring success and business success for you and your organization. 

    Sincerely, 

     
    Sal Iannuzzi
