Whither art thou, Craigslist?

Y’all may be interested to know that Craigslist is going to start charging for job postings in DC, Seattle, San Diego, and Boston starting October 22.

It’ll probably do quite a bit to improve the quality of the postings at Craigslist, which is great for the literally 2% of DC residents who are unemployed, but it’s going to be wildly annoying for recruiters employed by international companies who only have accounts on useless national boards like Monster and Hotjobs, who will suddenly have to fill out an expense report every time they want to use Craigslist. *cough* Not that I have an opinion about this, or anything.

(No, really, I think this is a move that makes a lot of sense for Craigslist. It inconveniences me personally, but Craigslist isn’t really for ME, after all.)
