Monster and the Pivot network are helping folks find the best careers for them. The two have collaborated to create nine segments for “Take Part Live”. “Take Part Live” is part of Monster’s “Find Better” initiative, which focuses on millennials looking for careers. “Take Part Live” is a topical show that tackles the day’s top career issues, but doesn’t take itself too seriously and offers stories and conversations that cater to millennials. The show even includes a segment for veterans looking for jobs.
Pivot is also offering an awesome position for a member of its audience! Monster introduced its readers and audience Oct. 7 with the opportunity to apply for a “Cool Jobs” Associate Producer position with Pivot as part of their partnership. To learn more about the position, click here.
