But how many of you here remember those hectic days when one had to rush from one organization to another with your resume in your hand in quest of an appropriate job? I expect the probability of yes to be high.
Thanks to the digital internet world who gave revolutionized birth to online job resources like Portals. Portals allow connecting recruiter and job seeker on the same platform to complete individual goal and requirements. Recruiters can hire the candidate who has the right qualification and skills whereas job seekers can apply for the jobs where their skills and knowledge achieve professional growth. The first online job search portal and the public resume database took birth in 1994. It was Jeff Taylor who founded the site to collect and post ads from the newspaper across the country. Right after two years of such innovative discovery of Jeff, a press media was released by media, driving thousands of users to their site.
The Monster Board was then bought out and went public in 1996. Later, after three years, they merge the Online Career Center- another of the first online job search sites which rebranded as Monster.com
