Monster.com Turns to Backpacker Market

The Australian division of international online recruitment site Monster.com has struck an alliance with Internet cafe chain Global Gossip to attract the potential 32,000 travellers entering Australia each month.

Seeing the inevitable increase in travellers in the lead-up to the Olympics, Monster.com will provide the Global Gossip site with access to its recruitment technology and network.

Global Gossip's facility provides access to email, fax and phones, and together with Monster.com will now offer a network of jobs and career guidance.

Monster.com's Asia Pacific marketing director Julie Cleeland Nicholls said the partnership bought two important elements together. "The world's workplace is becoming more global as the Internet breaks down traditional barriers," she said.
