Job Postings: Now Pay Per Candidate, Not Per Listing

Yahoo’s Hotjobs has introduced a new “pay per candidate” pay structure instead of the usual pay per job listing.

Employers can pre-screen candidates and only pay for (“buy Applies,” in their terminology) the ones who make it past the first stage of screening. When the Applies run out, the ad presumably disappears from HotJobs.

Pricing “varies by industry” and that’s all Yahoo’s saying about that.
