Reconciling assholes for nearly a decade.

joel has already made $31,500 on his jobs board.

Ugh. I need to step my career up a few notches. He'll make my year's salary in 3 weeks. Doing nothing.

He makes it only if the jobs are filled.
The big question is, how many will demand their money back?

Still, more power to him for milking his fame for all that it's worth.

I doubt many will ask for their money back.

I don't know how many of the first set of jobs were posted for free, though. He probably had a decent seed of friends and acquantaintances before he started... nothing worse than a job board that looks completely empty.

Good point.

Still, I think that 'No cure no pay' isn't really a good approach for a job board. Not unless there is some filter at the door that ensures some level of success for  the job ads.

Well, the $350 is some barrier to entry, you have to pay first. And since the refund says "your job board isn't worth it" not "We just didn't strike gold this time around," few people are likely to ask for their money back unless they want to be rude - they would hate to post another ad a year later if they'd asked for their money back because that says "your job board is worth it, but we're cheap bastards."

That's like saying I wouldn't use the warranty on my new TV if it broke. Because it's bad manners and it devaluates the worthiness of my TV.

No, you're paying for a service not a product. It's like buying a package tour of Hawaii, demanding a refund, and then buying a package tour of Germany from the same company.
