Monster India’s been rather quiet for the last few years. The company rarely – if at all, ever – discusses its operations. In response to MediaNama’s email requesting an interview with Sanjay Modi, Managing Director, Monster.com (India, Middle East), to discuss how the company has performed from an operation standpoint, we got the following response from a spokesperson:
“Thank you for your e mail. While we appreciate your endeavor, as a matter of our internal policy, we do not discuss/share our operations, financials, etc. with media.”
A ‘new’ tag on Monster.com suggests that the company recently launched Monster on Mobile services, allowing users to access job listings via GPRS, SMS and applications (Android and Blackberry).
