Andrew McKelvey founded Telephone Marketing Programs (TMP) in 1967. With no capital and no clients, TMP began focusing on the niche market of U.S. Yellow Pages advertising sales and grew to become the world's largest Yellow Pages agency.

Seeking ways to expand its expertise, TMP entered into the recruitment advertising business in 1993 through strategic acquisitions. TMP Advertising & Communications quickly earned its place among the top recruitment advertising firms by offering comprehensive human capital solutions and through its reputation as an early adopter of interactive technology. It was the pursuit of innovative technologies that led to the acquisition of two of the earliest pioneers in the online careers space - The Monster Board and Online Career Center (OCC) in 1995.

These purchases would usher in a new era of growth for the company. While TMP Worldwide went public in 1996, the career websites grew and eventually merged as Monster in 1999, adopting the friendly green monster Trumpasaurus as its icon. To convey its full focus on maximizing the potential growth and value of Monster, TMP Worldwide was officially renamed Monster Worldwide in 2003. To further align its business around Monster, the original Yellow Pages business was sold in 2005.

Monster Worldwide moved its stock from Nasdaq to the New York Stock Exchange in 2008.
