When you don’t use Monster, you will have to spend large amounts of money on ad fees in print publications, radio, and other media in several different markets in order to attract the kind of professional applicants that you want. But when you use Monster, you pay just one fee and you can attract applicants from across the country or around the corner. Monster is the most well known job site online and millions of people search Monster for jobs.

Another way that Monster saves your company money during the hiring process is by pre-screening applicants for you. Now your HR professionals and managers don’t have to waste time reading thousands of resumes from unqualified applicants just to find a few qualified applicants. You can set up special requirements that you want your applicants to meet and Monster will only send you resumes from people that meet those requirements. Saving your employees time means that Monster is saving the company money.

Monster.com also offers online skills testing, which is a great way to weed out applicants. If the job that you have to fill requires applicants that can use a particular brand of software you can set up an online test of that software that applicants have to pass before their resumes get sent to you. That way you don’t have to waste time trying to find out if the applicant really knows the software. You can also set up basic skills training seminars so that if an applicant you really want needs a quick refresher course on a particular type of software they can get the training they need online through Monster and you won’t have to train them.
