Everyone has a job board?

It seems that within a very short time frame, tech blogs across the country are launching job boards. VentureBeat, TechCrunch, Joel on Software, GigaOM even The Daily WTF has one. I’m sure that there are a ton more.

My first thought was that either a new job startup or one of the existing players, began partnering with the top tier blogs to offer advertisers (job posters) premium inventory. As it turns out, these all seem to be independent efforts. Pricing seems to be reasonably consistent at $200 per job. All of the boards have jobs posted, so clearly the expansion is finding some initial success.

The real question is are companies finding employees this way? We’ve talked a bit on the Judy’s Book blog about how hard it can be to find talented developers. My instinct is that $800 spent on 4 of these sites is better then $800 at Monster. You’d be much more likely to attract cutting edge talent in sync with all that’s new. We might try that at JB.
