How to Make Money from an Online Job Board

Ever considered making money off of a job board? It's really not too difficult. All you really need is some programming; then you need to contact employers so that you can list jobs on your website. This usually works best if you work for a company that is currently hiring. You can use your ties within the company you work for to let them know about the job board you're running, and then you can start to post jobs your company is looking for.


A lot of the time if you're able to produce results your employer will tell others about your job board, and your job board will start to grow. You could always call temp agencies or local businesses as well, and get them to give you jobs to post on your board.
