Monster and Adicio Form Strategic Recruitment Services Alliance
Monster and Adicio Form Strategic Recruitment Services Alliance Relationship Enables Adicio to Offer Monster's Industry-Leading
Recruitment Services to 250+ Media Partners Nationwide
MAYNARD, Mass. & CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 13, 2007--Monster(R), the leading global online careers and recruitment resource and flagship brand of Monster Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: MNST), and Adicio Inc., the leading provider of interactive classified advertising software for media companies, today announced an alliance to facilitate access to Monster recruitment services. Through the alliance, Adicio's 250+ clients will be able to utilize Monster's industry-leading tools and resources in ways that best suit their respective needs. In addition, Adicio will provide backend technology support and data conversion for media companies choosing to align with Monster for recruitment services.
"Today's announcement represents a tremendous opportunity to increase Monster's localized points of distribution across the country - which is a key component of our strategy to drive market share, particularly among the small and medium-sized business segment," said Doug Klinger, president, Monster North America. "Local media companies, and technology companies like Adicio, are choosing to work with Monster because of our high brand awareness; the quality and depth of our products and services; and our ability to attract quality job seekers."
Adicio clients may elect to engage in a full co-branded partnership with Monster to leverage Monster's brand recognition, national reach and leading search and match technology. Alternatively, Adicio media partners can offer advertisers the option of posting particular jobs on Monster from the Adicio Careers platform - for national reach and greater local exposure - and can provide seekers the opportunity to expand their search to see the matches Monster provides.
As part of the deal, Monster customers will be able to purchase print advertising from Adicio media partners later this year via Monster's new "click to print" service - where online ads can be easily transformed into print.

"Monster creates win-win situations with its media partners, enabling them to leverage Monster's brand recognition and national reach while offering the greatest value to job seekers and employers."
Moving forward, Adicio will handle the technology integration for media companies choosing to work with Monster to ensure seamless transitions for employers and job seekers. Adicio will coordinate implementation and integration, including data conversion of resumes, employer accounts and job seeker agents. Adicio will also provide phone and online technical support, training assistance and other services, including job wrapping, in support of Monster's media alliances.

CareerBuilder.com Launches CBPublic
Chicago, March 12, 2007 -- CareerBuilder.com, the nation's largest online job site with more than 21 million unique visitors and over 1.5 million jobs, announced it has launched CBPublic, a new division dedicated to providing recruitment solutions and support to state and local government organizations. CBPublic works with state and local government agencies to increase public awareness efforts and outreach surrounding job opportunities. Leveraging a vast online network, CBPublic connects public sector employers with the most qualified candidates and delivers cost-reducing employment solutions to help improve the economies of state and local regions.
State and local governments are among the largest employers in the nation, with an estimated 7.9 million workers, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Employment in this sector is expected to increase 11 percent through 2014. At the same time, employers face a challenging hiring climate as large numbers of baby boomers retire in coming years and smaller generations of replacement workers fill their ranks.
The launch of CBPublic comes at a critical time as many public-sector employers are already struggling with employee recruitment and retention. In a recent CareerBuilder.com survey, 18 percent of government workers say they are dissatisfied with their jobs, and 20 percent plan to leave their current positions by the end of 2007.
"The pool of available talent is shrinking and productivity growth has reached a plateau," said Steve Million, State and Local Government director for CareerBuilder.com. "Forty percent of employers surveyed by CareerBuilder.com say they currently have jobs for which they can't find skilled workers. For state and local governments, this can have serious consequences, jeopardizing crucial functions such as transportation and tourism and affecting overall economic performance."
CBPublic provides a job matching solution that gets the right candidates in place at less cost so state and local government agencies can drive initiatives forward and fuel the bottom line. Specialized tools including search agents, job templates and candidate screeners help simplify and expedite the recruitment of quality candidates. In addition, the division offers the Workforce Development Solution, a service that assists state workforce development divisions in increasing the employment, retention, earnings and skill attainment of all residents in compliance with the Wagner Peyser Act. The Wagner Peyser Act established a one-stop nationwide system of public employment offices that connect job seekers and employers.
"State and local government employers are constantly competing for qualified workers with local businesses and other government organizations," said Million. "CBPublic is designed to mitigate this problem by increasing awareness of public sector positions while delivering the greatest amount of skilled, relevant candidates. We understand the positive impact a competitive workforce can have on economic development and we take our role in facilitating this very seriously."
