Monster, eBay in Marketing Pact

NEW YORK Monster and eBay said they have inked a deal under which the career site will be advertised on the online marketplace.

As a part of the agreement, a link to and banners promoting the job site will appear on eBay.

Monster will also serve as the title sponsor of eBay Live! and eBay University. The former is an annual conference, this year taking place June 24-26 in New Orleans, which brings together eBay buyers and sellers from around the world. The latter is a roving program that teaches people how to buy and sell on eBay.

Financial terms were not revealed.

“We are excited about the business prospects associated with this deal. Hiring qualified employees is crucial to growing a business. Monster can help small businesses on eBay do this efficiently and cost-effectively,” said Jeff Taylor, chief executive of Maynard, Mass.-based Monster.
