When a premium offering becomes obsolete

2022-02-09 - Hiring

I have recently promoted a job opening on We Work Remotely (WWE) with the premium add-on. The premium add-on includes visual highlighting and featuring the job ad - promising that the ad stands out and creates visibility.

In reality, most companies that advertise their jobs on WWE post their positions with the premium add-on, making the premium add-on obsolete. The add-on does not fulfill the promise anymore, and the premium job ad will be among many others.

Again, it is proof that the job market is hot and every tech company is hiring.

WWE job listing contains mainly featured ads

P.S. I haven't validated it, but I assume the situation is not different from other known job boards.
