The Future of Human Capital
Jeff Taylor
Founder and Chief Monster
Monster.com
 

The idea for Monster came to Jeff Taylor in a dream. Head of his own recruitment ad agency, Adion, Taylor was focusing his business on big ideas and technological efficiencies for his high-tech clients. In the fall of 1993, a client said to him, "No more big ideas. I want a Monster idea!"

Soon afterward, Taylor says, "I woke up at 4:30 a.m. from a dream that I built a bulletin board system where people could look for jobs. In the dark, I wrote down on a pad next to my bed, 'The Monster Board.' Realizing that in the morning I would't be able to read what I had written, I got out of bed, went to a coffee shop, and at five in the morning designed a lot of the concepts and interface we're still using today." Recognized as an innovator and visionary in both the Internet and careers industries, Taylor has reinvented the way the world looks for employment. His 'monster idea' conceived at the dawn of the World Wide Web, quickly became one of the first dot com companies (454th on the web) and has since grown into the world's leading online career site. Today, the Monster global network consists of local content and language sites in 21 countries and serves over 14 million unique visitors monthly.
