Craigslist’s New Job Posting Charges
Pay attention, recruiters: Craigslist recently announced that it would begin charging $25 to post jobs in eight key cities: Atlanta, GA; Austin, TX; Dallas, TX; Denver, CO; Houston, TX; Miami, FL; Philadelphia, PA; and Phoenix, AZ.
Sure, having to suddenly pay for something that you’ve been getting for free might hurt your company’s wallet at first, but think about it like this: your response rate may actually jump, since spam and “get rich quick” ads have begun to vanish. Weigh your options carefully before making a decision.
So, what does this mean to the job seeker? Absolutely nothing. Craigslist is still free to use, and might even be more effective as a job search tool, since junk listings have been reduced.
Head over to Craigslist to read about the changes in detail.
