In the past 18 years Monster.com has grown from 7,000 job postings to over 1 million, and  with an estimated market for online recruitment at more than $5 billion, Monster’s share is estimated at 23%.  So how does that compare to others? CareerBuilder.com’s share is an estimated 32%, and LinkedIn’s is an estimated 16%

Analysts have identified several possible avenues for Monster including an outright sale, the sale of a stake or some of its territories, or a leveraged buyout.

Take a stroll down memory lane from the early 90’s through today with the history of Monster.com – with the infographic below from PCRecruiter.
