While job seekers looking for work can usually post their resumes and other information online for free, employers must pay for online recruitment advertising services.

Typical costs:

  • Posting a job online typically costs employers $99-$395 for one month, with prices dependent largely on location and industry.
  • For example, Monster[1] charges $210-$395 to post one job on its site for one month, with the price dependent upon location. A one-month job posting in Seattle or Trenton, N.J., costs $365; it's $300 in Columbus, OH, and $250 in Flagstaff, AZ. CareerBuilder.com[2] charges $419 to post one job for one month, and Net-Temps.com[3] , which carries both temporary and full-time job postings, charges $99 for one "slot" that remains active for 30 days and can be used to post more than one position during that time.
  • Prices to post a job on professional networking site Linkedin[4] vary by city. For example, a 30-day job posting costs $95 in Rhode Island, $195 in Atlanta and $295 in San Francisco.
  • Regional online recruitment firm NJJobShop.com[5] maintains a resume database of job candidates from New Jersey that is free for employers to browse and contact through the site. If the job seeker agrees to respond and initiate discussions, the employer pays $10 for the ability to email the candidate directly. This company's parent firm, AllCountyJobs.com[6] , operates a network of local and industry-specific online job boards covering Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C. and Maryland.
  • Other specialty sites like ChristianJobs.com[7] charge $199-$399 or more to post a single job for one month, with discounts for more than one month or multiple job postings. The site, which helps churches, schools, nonprofits and other businesses find employees, charges an additional $100 for access to its online resume database during the time the job posting is active. SalesJobs.com[8] , which is designed for businesses seeking salespeople, charges $199 per month for one posting in one location. For $399, the company offers unlimited postings in unlimited locations and also gives employers access to search resume banks for qualified candidates.

What should be included:
  • Accolo.com, a company that provides hiring expertise to small and mid-sized firms, details the advantages and disadvantages[9] of online recruitment. The company found online recruitment can make hiring more efficient and create a more streamlined approach to finding new employees. However, Accolo added, this approach can also make it harder to gauge more intangible factors when evaluating a prospective employee.
Additional costs:
  • Some recruitment first charge extra to conduct background checks on prospective employees. For example, ChristianJobs.com charges an additional $10 to conduct a credit check of a potential job candidate. That site also charges $85 to conduct a background check that includes a driver's license and sexual offender status check, as well as verification of education and previous employment.
Discounts:
  • Some firms offer volume discounts for companies that post several openings. For example, the price to post 10 positions on Monster[10] drops to $230 each. Net-Temps.com offers a 50% volume discount[11] , charging $495 for 10 posting slots that remain active for 30 days and can be used to promote more than one position during that time.
  • Monster also periodically offers discounts to its corporate clients. A recent offer[12] gives a 25% discount for one 60-day job postings, bringing the price to $297 for one posting and $844 for three.
Shopping for online recruitment:
  • Other issues of interest to businesses turning to the web to find employees are covered in Online Recruitment magazine[13] .
  • Sites including CareerBuilder[14] and Monster[15] permit companies to post jobs within a year of purchase. ChristianJobs.com[16] requires postings to be used within 180 days of purchase.
  • Indeed.com has a free research paper[17] outlining best practices in online recruiting available for download.
