Ecorp to Monster Asian market

The deal follows the alliance the companies struck in February this year, which saw Monster.com become the exclusive job search and career content provider to ecorp's Ninemsn portal.

While the two companies will split the local offering fifty-fifty, Monster.com will take a 65 per cent share of the Hong Kong business, with ecorp owning the rest.

Ecorp was extremely pleased with the pace at which the alliance had begun its expansion into Asia, said Daniel Petre, ecorp's executive chairman. "We see substantial opportunities for growth in Hong Kong and the other Asian markets. Monster.com is well positioned to be a successful player in this region," he said.

Ecorp and Monster.com, the flagship brand of the Nasdaq-listed recruitment company TMP Worldwide, want to take advantage of Hong Kong's "tech-savvy" population and emerging Asian job markets, according to Monster.com's CEO, Jeff Taylor.

He said Hong Kong was an ideal location for Monster because it supported many of the company's global clients, internet penetration was high, and there was a strong labour market. "This means that there is a ready pool of both job seekers and employers who will benefit from our site and services," Taylor said.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
