There’s no doubt in my mind about this review: Monster.com is a true monster of the employment market. Has been for practically decades. I think just about everybody’s heard of Monster.com, and you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who’d say anything bad about the job site. Their content-driven model’s second to none. Their services are pristine. They’re always on point with the trends in the industry. You log in, save your information, update it when necessary, and find jobs in your area with ease. And so I’m betting you’re asking why we didn’t even rate Monster.com with a straight 5 stars (more like 4 1/2!). That’s simple — linear simplicity.

Don’t get me wrong, though; you’ll succeed with this job site just fine. What could be counted as disadvantages, though, is that Monster.com isn’t just a job site. Maybe at one point in the past, it was. But not anymore. It’s a central hub for anything job-related; and for the aggressive job seeker, that could slow a person down perhaps a little. Moreover, the unfortunate truth about job boards and sites is that they’re only as effective as those employers choosing to post their openings on any given site, and with all the competition in the industry, it’s safe to say that even Monster.com can’t possibly have all the job openings available for every area in the United States.

I know: a minor inconvenient truth. But still worth the time and effort for a job candidate to open up a new account with Monster.com regardless. You really can’t lose.
