With more employers turning to online hiring, job boards have fantastic market potential.

There are two main ways to make money online with a virtual job board. The first is to rent out space for employers to advertise their job listings. The second is to sell access to exclusive job listings to job seekers via a paid membership system.

Popular job board websites like Indeed, Glassdoor, and ZipRecruiter charge employers for premium job post placements. Most of these sites base their pricing plans on factors such as posting period, in-depth company information, or reviews.

The easiest way to create this type of website is with a WordPress job board plugin. For example, WP Job Manager offers tools to seamlessly submit and manage job listings.

Additionally, consider installing a membership plugin to restrict access to job postings.
