Web job boards, a million dollar industry

By January 27, 2008No Comments3 min read

I’ve been thinking about job boards and discussing them with some of the others in RefreshMiami a bunch lately. I know they burst onto the scene years ago (I’m talking niche job boards). So it turns out that from my 10 minute research, these features on sites (none I know of are standalone sites), are grossing almost a million dollars a year!

The top earner in the category is 37Signals Job board with over $30k/month in earnings. The second biggest earner of the bunch is not who I had expected, it is Cameron Moll’s AuthenticJobs, which is generating close to $20k/month. The AuthenticJobs is really impressive considering its a one man shop running it. Hats off Cam for making such a successful job board. Here is a link to the spreadsheet below.
