Monster.com Rebuilding

Cheezhead reports: Monster.com hoping to ‘reinvent’ industry

Monster’s user interface has been so bad for so long, and their usage stats relative to other job boards have lagged, and now they are run by folks who come from outside the HR recruiting space… I am not holding my breath for any new site release.

It's possible there will be a pleasant surprise on 10 January 2009 with their rebuilt user interface, but I really doubt it will be good enough to stop their slide down in the fast changing job posting - career site market. If they are spending all their effort on just the applicant experience, then they are ignoring who pays the bills, the subscribing employers, who have suffered for a decade with an awful user interface.
