Online classifieds jobs provider Monster and Comcast Spotlight, the advertising sales division of Comcast Cable, today announced that Monster's recruitment services will now be available on Comcast's on-demand tier.

Starting next month, as part of a three-year deal, Comcast's digital cable subscribers across the country can access "Monster On Demand" for job listings and employment resources with their remote controls.

Monster will be the exclusive provider of job listings on Comcast's Searchlight ad-supported VOD platform, as well as the exclusive sales arm for Monster On Demand. The Monster-branded on-demand channel, located in Comcast's On Demand menu under "Searchlight,” will give listings that drive viewers to a co-branded Web site, where they will have the ability to further connect with featured companies and submit resumes.

Monster's employer customers will benefit from an extended reach into the approximately 16.5 million digital homes in Comcast’s footprint, and the ability to reach job seekers at a local level in more than 70 Designated Markets Areas (DMAs). Monster On Demand will utilize Comcast Spotlight's On Demand publishing platform.

Financial terms of the partnership weren’t announced.
