Why do portals not ‘debug’ bad  offers

There is a situation that is frequently repeated in social networks: users denouncing job offers found within general job portals and, at the very least, are illegal because of their conditions. And the question is often repeated: why do job portals do not eliminate such offers?The question has two answers: the official and the unofficial.

The official, usually offered by the portals themselves, is that they usually manage such a high volume of offers that managing them one by one, debugging them and eliminating those that graze the fraud ends up being a task practically impossible to carry out.And surely they do not lack reason to argue that, although their official response often ends up confronting with the unofficial, which starts from a fact that the average user does not usually know: for job portals, ‘customers’ are not the unemployed, but businesses.

That is to say, who is going to supply the income of a portal is not the employee who visits the web in search of work, but the companies that are charged an amount for each published offer. Thus, the equation seems quite simple: the more offers there are, the higher income the portal will have.In the end, the general portals do not end up looking like the best place to find quality employment, precisely.

Because, moreover, the distribution of the offers between the hidden market and the public is not random or random, since the vacancies of higher qualification are usually the ones that less come to light, due to the avalancha of CV’s that would receive the companies . Thus, the visible market ends up populated by a selection of offers that are not only reduced but also of a medium-low profile.
