Monster®, the worldwide leader in successfully connecting people to job opportunities and the flagship brand of Monster Worldwide (NYSE: MWW), today announced the successful migration of ChinaHR, a leading recruitment website in China and a member of Monster’s global recruitment network, to Monster’s global platform. With the comprehensive platform migration, ChinaHR will be ready to successively launch Monster’s world-leading technologies and the Chinese versions of products supported by these technologies. The upgrade will fully equip ChinaHR to provide a "high efficiency and precision” user experience for employers and job seekers alike and help facilitate the ability to fill positions globally.
Businesses and job seekers using the upgraded ChinaHR for recruiting or job search will experience a significant change in their user experience. Users will have more customized personal pages, more efficient resume management functions and over time, users will have access to more accurate search functionality that can "understand" natural language.
"Monster is a leader in applying advanced Internet technology to the recruitment industry,” said Monster Greater China executive vice president and ChinaHR CEO Edward Lo. "The completion of this comprehensive platform upgrade will equip ChinaHR with Monster’s world-leading technology, bringing unprecedented efficiency and precision to recruiting in China, enabling both employers and job seekers to find the perfect match with less time and effort.”
A 2012 ChinaHR survey shows 20 percent of jobs are left open for over six months and 23 percent of job seekers spend more than half a year searching for the right job.
The recruitment industry as a whole found itself hugely inefficient, due to its inability to handle the massive increase in information brought on by the Internet. Industry experts point out that maintaining high efficiency and precision in matching jobs with job seekers is the core value of the recruitment industry, and that advancements in Internet technology innovation are necessary to achieve further breakthroughs in this area.
As the world's largest online recruitment website, Monster maintains an extensive recruitment network covering 55 countries and regions worldwide, and has remained committed to technological innovation with the aim of achieving the highest efficiency and precision in matching corporate positions and job seekers. Monster has led in the development and delivery of the most advanced technologies in online recruiting including behavioral targeting, 6Sense® semantic search technology and cloud-based semantic search and analytics.
