You might just find your next job on Craigslist

The quality of job postings on Craigslist is expected to rise now that the company will be charging a nominal fee to employers in various markets.

According to Craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster, the charge came after hearing from “website users who wanted to enrich the quality of the online job board.” In an effort to improve quality, the website now charges fees for job postings in seven of the 450 regions where it operates, including New York, New Jersey, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. , with Sacramento; Portland, Oregon; and Orange County, California to follow.

Buckmaster notes that Craigslist hosts 30 million unique visitors and 8 billion page views each month, with approximately 25% of the activity related to job searchs.
