Animals Prefer Monster to CareerBuilder

Written by PETA | February 25, 2011

For a monstrously successful job search, skip CrueltyBuilder and check out our cool new banner ad for Monster.

Why are we giving Monster top billing on our website? Because Monster successfully brings together employers and job seekers—of the human variety—and leaves abused animal actors out of the picture. Monster’s awesome animatronic fiddling beaver ad is a huge YouTube hit.

Maybe Monster chose inanimate “actors” because it is aware that animal actors are torn away from their mothers as infants; subjected to abusive training methods; forced to spend most of their lives in small, filthy cages deprived of everything that is natural and important to them; and often dumped at seedy roadside zoos. Or maybe Monster is just as innovative with its ads as it is with its job services.

If you’re searching for a job and you happen to be a human, check out And let CareerBuilder know that people want jobs, animals don’t.

    CareerBuilder continues to insist on ads with chimps because “people keep asking for ‘the monkeys'”. This shows the ignorance of both the people requesting the ads and the company supplying them. Ever heard of computers in advertising? They create great “monkeys”!

    That’s great, but Monster has always been more of a pain for me to search through to find jobs. Additionally, a couple of those beavers in the ads looked real, i.e. the forest scenes in the background. You MAY want to look closer to be sure though. You may be praising a group that still used animals, just like Bridgestone did as well as CB.
