The campaign includes online, national TV, print, and radio placements. Interactive advertising was handled in-house by the Monster Online Marketing Group. The media plan includes search marketing, Flash banners and some over-page ads. The online reach will cover over 5,000 sites and “millions” of impressions, said Monster Online Marketing Group VP John Federico.

Among these are the Web sites for Infinity Broadcasting’s 180 radio stations and Internet Broadcasting Systems’ (IBS) 58 affiliate news and information sites. Monster and IBS have a strategic marketing agreement.

Updated features to the revamped site include personalization and resume builder enhancements, new networking services and an online customer service center.

Monster also sold its Yellow Pages division to Audax Group. The sale, which included divisions TMP Worldwide Directional Marketing and, focuses the company’s operations on growing the Monster franchise and cements’s dominance in its strategy.

“This transaction benefits Monster Worldwide by allowing us to focus more squarely on our core competencies and enhance our prospects for future growth,” said Andrew McKelvey, chairman and CEO of Monster Worldwide.
