Monster.com + Google Maps = Job Mapping


+
Maps = Job Mapping

Monster.com has joined the likes of SimplyHired.com by adding Google Maps functionality to their online job search website. On the Monster.com (US) site when you perform a job search you'll be greeted with the following option at the top of your list of jobs results:



When you click this "Map Results" function, you are then given a Google Map with the location of each job mapped out for you:



It appears that only the US site has this functionality currently. I'm not sure why Monster.ca in Canada doesn't have this enabled since it pulls from the same North American Google mapping data as its US counterpart does. Monster.ca should be following in the slipstream of this development effort by bringing the Canadian online job search space something similar to what Monster.com has done.
