I woke up this morning all motivated to jump onto Monster.com to search for on-line writing jobs.
Callaghan was quick to inform me of its short-comings:
“Monster.com isn’t what it used to be. For one thing, like everything else, they ditched the fucking monster.”
“What do you mean?”
“Well, remember they used to have a little monster mascot?”
But in actuality, I didn’t remember, because I’d never been to Monster.com. Thanks to Callaghan, I’m now prepared to confront a sadly monster-less site, which might shake my faith in its accuracy and ability to provide up-to-date job opening information. Isn’t it false advertising to call your site “Monster” without a monster anywhere in the picture? I don’t see how a job-search site with false advertising can be trusted. It makes me wonder what else could be missing.
I’m sure that all they need is a monster make-over. Maybe they could create different monsters to represent a variety of career fields? I have some ideas:
-Serial Killer career: Hand-cuffed monster
-Underwater Basket-Weaving career: Brain-dead monster
-Sperm-Donating career: Tired monster
-Bullshit Artist career: Tap-dancing monster
-Vampire career: Sparkly monster
-Werewolf career: Blurry monster
Callaghan read my list and made some weird faces, like he couldn’t decide whether to say anything. Whatever!
I still haven’t visited Monster.com. I might get around to it later today, but I’ve lost my motivation. Maybe I’ll go outside and play in the snow instead. I could make a monster snowman and name him “.com.”
