I’ve been a fan of Monster.com since their early commercials featuring kids who wanted to grow up and become "middle managment" or "yes-men." Hilarious! What can I say, I like companies that encourage people to follow their dreams. Monster is continuing this trend with a new initiative called Find Better, helping people find better jobs whether they’re just starting out, want to start their own businesses or are transitioning careers from military to civilian service for example. There’s even an entertaining video series created with the Pivot TV network.
Below you can find links and more information on upcomingTV and video segments to help in your own quest to Find Better…
Monster introduces their latest campaign, Find Better! Monster and the Pivot TV network have teamed up to create 9 segments for Take Part Live —a topical show that tackles timely issues without taking itself too seriously and provides stories and conversations that matter to millennials.
Also being created are digital Find Better shorts featuring career advice and real life challenges. View the latest segments at http://www.TakePart.com/
