Yahoo Hot Jobs Becomes a Monster

In 2010, Monster bought Yahoo Hot Jobs for a record $225MM.  Yahoo's job search division, formerly HotJobs.com, is now under the Monster.com umbrella.

"Okay, so what?" you might ask. "Why should I care?  I'm just looking to find a job."

Well, you don’t really need to know all the details but it was a good thing for everyone: Monster got a huge piece of the job search industry and Yahoo off-loaded work that they weren't all that great at.

For you, this means more job postings and more effective job search results.

If you had a profile it has since been transferred over to Monster.  There you can update, search and research with better results than you ever could at Yahoo.

Yahoo is a great search engine company.  Being a job search organization was, in my opinion, spreading them to thin.

If you are (or were) a Monster.com user then no change has occurred. You just have access to more jobs.

So no more Yahoo Hot Jobs and onto Monster.  But wait...

...there’s more!

Working Monster Magick

To summarize the writer James Allen's landmark 1902 book, As a Man Thinketh...

We don't attract what we desire, but what we are. Only by changing your thoughts will you change your life.

This has been the prominent concept in most self-help books. It has been for a reason. For in your thoughts is where the "magick" lies: change your thoughts; change your life.

Doing the same ol', same ol' is going to get the same old results.

Yahoo! Jobs

What if you want to work for Yahoo?  There are still "hot jobs" at Yahoo!

Yes, Yahoo, the Internet search engine company headquartered in California, is hiring!  Most of these positions are technical.  After all, Yahoo! is an Internet company.
