With the acquisition of HotJobs by Monster, Beyond.com now becomes the U.S. affiliate of The Network, a worldwide group of job boards that distributes employer ads globally.
Beyond, itself a network of some 15,000 employment sites, replaces HotJobs. The former Yahoo job board joined The Network in 2004 as the affiliate for the US and Canada.
The Network itself was founded in 2002 by two United Kingdom job boards — StepStone and TotalJobs. They brought in the Swiss board, Jobs.ch, and Irishjobs. Today, The Network claims a presence in 121 countries. It has 36 members, with multiple local job boards, and an especially strong presence in Europe.
