Mathematicians for Monster - 12/2000

Workopolis challenge Monster's data

Personicrecruitnews recently reported that although Monster.com has achieved critical mass in the United States, which is no mean feat, the company is not the dominant player in other countries, a fact that its online rivals highlight every chance they get. Last month Canadian job site Workopolis.com issued a press release called Mathematicians Wanted after Monster's Canadian unit Monster.ca made the claim that it housed the largest number of jobs in Canada. On November 9, Montreal-based Monster.ca banner ads say the site offered 7,000 jobs; while Workopolis had 40,799 jobs. On a traffic basis, an At Home Media Metrix Survey showed Workopolis.com garnered 339,000 unique visitors in September compared to Monster.ca's 273,000. A side note, Workopolis.com said that as of October it had generated C$1 million in revenues ever since its launch in January 2000.
