If you create your job board in a specific niche (home improvement or pest control,etc.) you’ll have less competition and a good opportunity to target qualified audiences.
You have to create a separate webpage that allows companies to post job vacancies. When a company ask you to list their job application you can charge them a little amount of fee for the listing. And also if someone fill the job application.
