unique experience and how proper preparation and leveraging the most advanced
tools available today can provide the greatest payoff for their careers and,
more importantly, the rest of their lives.

Beginning today, Pivot will also air Monster.com branded segments for its late
night topical show, TakePart Live. A series of nine in-studio “Find Better”
segments will be integrated into TakePart Live from September through
December, featuring career coaches, seasoned executives, and job seekers. The
in show series and the accompanying digital shorts will focus on tactics and
strategies on how to find not just a job, but a fulfilling career. Topics
include: How to Craft Your Personal Brand; How to Break the Negative
Perception of Millennials in the Workplace; The Benefits of Working for a
Company that Matches an Individual’s Moral Compass; How to Handle Rejection;
How to Build your Own Business from Scratch or Create a Successful Freelance

The “Find Better®” series on TakePart Live showcases motivational coach Josh
Shipp whose prominent role in the campaign includes appearances in all the
TakePart Live segments and puts him front and center in the series' other
digital shorts to provide Millennials with tangible tips and takeaways,
highlighting tools from Monster.com. The shorts will also be featured on
