Setting up Gopher with
Monster job postings cost about $225 per job and last
for one month. Monster also offers some great
social media posting, and
co-branding that are designed to increase the performance of your job postings.
Here are the steps to setup and dynamically link
Gopher and Monster
1) Setup a Monster corporate account
when you checkout for a job posting or call
2) Request a user name and
password from Monster by
contacting Monster Customer Service. If you have
started an account you can contact the customer service
representative that has been assigned to your account.
3) Enter your job(s) into Gopher's
job tab with all the relevant information that you want
to post directly to Monster. The Gopher owner of
job should have a Gopher profile email address that
Monster applicants will send their applications
and resumes to. The company name on your Gopher
profile must match the company name on your
Monster corporate account.
If you have an
application page on your website you may wish to send
Monster applicants to that page.
Also, if jobs on your website are
posted directly from Gopher, you can provide a direct
link to your "Gopher Target List" from the
job posting. Contact us for more information.
Note: Special care should
be made with these job descriptions. Remember
- 63 million
visitors per month!
4) Once you have entered all the
jobs you are going to post to Monster, make a Gopher
Hot List containing these jobs
(contact BlackDog if you need
help making a Hot List).
5) Select all the jobs on the Gopher
Hot List you wish to post to Monster.
6) From the Hot List menu select
> 'Export Positions to
Job Board' >
7) Select the desired action from
the menu: Add, Change or Delete selected jobs from
Monster. If you are changing existing jobs on
Monster, the desired changes need to be made to the
position on the Job tab in Gopher and saved prior to posting
the change to Monster.
8) After clicking the desired action
you will be asked to enter the Monster password
acquired in step 2. Enter the password and click OK.
9) A small window will appear asking
you to enter 'Remote Host',
'Password' and 'Remote
Folder'. Call BlackDog to acquire these values
for the first time. The entries are required only
for the first time and will be saved for future
Monster postings. Enter the values if not present
and click OK.
10) You are finished! Be sure to go
to Monster and view your posted jobs. Repeat steps
4 through 9 for any changes or corrections.
