(AP Photo/Kathy Willens) (Newser) – It's a layoff announcement with a sad, ironic twist: Monster Worldwide, which runs the online recruitment site and makes job-search software, is itself slashing 400 jobs, reports Reuters. That amounts to 7% of full-time staff. "The progress we saw in the fourth quarter was much slower than what we saw earlier in the year," says CEO Sal Iannuzzi. The company gets half its revenue from within the US, where it's facing increased competition from CareerBuilder and the expanding LinkedIn, notes MarketWatch.
