Monster Powering the Job Board at CeBIT, World’s Largest International Digital Trade Show

Monster® (NYSE: MWW), the worldwide leader in connecting people to job opportunities and the flagship brand of Monster Worldwide, Inc., is powering the technology behind the jobs board at CeBIT, the world's largest trade fair showcasing digital IT and telecommunications solutions. CeBIT began on March 6th in Hanover, Germany, and the “CeBIT Job Centre powered by Monster” has nearly 11,000 open IT jobs posted.

During CeBIT, Monster will take a leading role in three forums on Saturday, March 10th, guiding CeBIT attendees in both English and German through the latest trends in the job market. Topics will include “Social Recruiting: How to build a professional network,” “Employer Branding: How can I tell an employer is right for me?” and “CeBIT in Motion,” where Monster will share tips for mapping a successful career.

In addition, Monster will offer a B2B recruitment consulting service in German and English during the entire event, where employers and HR experts will be able to learn about Monster’s recruiting tools, including its semantic 6Sense™ search technology and its social networking application “BeKnown™ from Monster.”

“Talented people who are secure in their jobs are nervous to move in these uncertain times,” says Phillip Snalune, European Director at Monster. “What this means is that attracting top talent has become more competitive and companies need to focus on all areas of their branding strategy to ensure their name is resonating in a positive way in the minds of potential employees. Trade shows like CeBIT offer a perfect shop window.”

According to Monster’s Monthly Employment Index, IT employers have started to increase their hiring activity across Europe, with the number of IT jobs available rising since this time last year in: Belgium (up five percent); Germany (up six percent); the Netherlands (up one percent); the UK (up 19 percent); and Sweden (up 20 percent). This recruitment is largely focused on technicians and support desk positions. In addition, the expected seasonal dip in recruitment in January was not as severe as in previous years in many European markets including the Netherlands, the UK and Sweden.

For many IT companies exhibiting at CeBIT this year, the show is an important milestone in their hiring calendar.

"CeBIT 2012 is the start of our recruiting activities for this year,” according to Sven Breipohl, Vice President HR Central Europe, Capgemini. “At Capgemini, we are particularly looking for graduates and young professionals. The IT trade fair is an ideal location for us to educate potential employees that the company stands for more than strategy consulting; we also develop and implement sophisticated software solutions – a fact that many graduates don’t realize.”

Simone Wamsteker, Head of Recruiting CE at Accenture, added, “Accenture is one of the major players in the industry. Therefore, we use CeBIT as a platform to draw attention to the exciting and international job opportunities on offer.”
