In fact, there are 1.1 million reasons.
That’s because the average job board generates a yearly revenue of $1.1 million, according to a 2020 study by Staffing Industry Analysts.
Job boards are incentivized to keep job hunters, like you, searching for work and strapped for cash. The longer you look for employment, the longer you’re on their site—which generates more ad revenue for them.
So when you’re scrolling through these job boards, you’re actually boosting their bottom line, over and over again. I mean, why should they empower you to find work? Your unemployment makes them money – $22 billion dollars*.
And job boards aren’t the only guilty party here, either.
