Monster.ca introduces online video to help Canadian employers target and attract top talent in today's tight labor market



    'Monster Video Profile' lets employers harness the power of multimedia
    job postings while giving job seekers a clearer picture of the
    environment companies have to offer

    MONTREAL, June 16 /CNW Telbec/ - Monster Canada today announced the
launch of Monster Video Profile, an exciting new multimedia tool designed to
let employers easily introduce streaming video into their Monster.ca job
postings.
    With Monster Video Profile, already a huge success among employers in the
U.S. since its launch there less than a year ago, Monster.ca will be offering
video production, hosting and job posting integration to employers who want to
put their best foot forward as the war for talent grows in Canada's tight
labor market. Monster has chosen to partner with Streamlogics, Inc., a leading
global provider of webcasting services to deliver the Video Profile service in
Canada.
    Canadian job seekers are about to gain new insights into the working
environment of the companies they are interested in joining, thanks to Monster
Video Profile, said Peter Gilfillan, Monster Canada's vice president of sales
and general manager
    "Monster Video Profile has received terrific reviews among U.S. employers
and we think Canadian employers and candidates alike are going to find
fantastic value in a multimedia recruitment tool that enhances employers'
efforts to attract the best of qualified candidates," said Gilfillan. "Online
video will allow Canadian employers to convey their culture, values and brand
in powerful new ways that are sure to resonate with job seekers looking to
make the smartest choices in today's competitive job market."
    To access the video content on the Monster.ca Web site, job seekers can
simply click the video icon on an employer's job posting.
    Each Monster Video Profile offers three different video presentation
options to best accommodate the unique hiring goals of different companies:

    
    - Company Close-up: An in-depth company profile that can highlight
      corporate culture, work environment, employee benefits and industry
      positioning;
    - Company Snapshot: A spotlight, highlighting the employer's culture and
      workplace benefits;
    - Career Insider: A vignette that gives job seekers a peek into a "day in
      the life" of an employee.
    

    Monster Video Profile offers a host of services, including concept
creation and consultation, along with complete video production and editing.
By selecting Streamlogics, Inc. as the Canadian partner for this new service,
Monster Canada has ensured that its customers will receive world class service
with local support.
    Monster.ca is also offering the option to have existing corporate video
added directly to an employer's Monster job posting.
