If you are just getting into the job board business take this advice about which software to use.
I start all my new job boards with Jobamatic. Why you ask?
1. Its free. There are no setup fees. You can host your own homepage or even use the jobamatic platform for the whole site by pointing the entire domain there link I do with CNCjobsnow.com. $0 setup fee cant be beat.
2. It is easy to use. If you have limited or no experience in publishing web pages you dont need much knowledge to upload a logo. Since you only have control over color/header/footer it takes less time to manage.
3. You can make money other than postings via backfill and add ADSENSE code. Its a three-pronged approach to revenue.
So although you only get a 50/50 split on job posting revenue a jobamatic board allows you to TEST the market you are targeting without having to spend any money on setup. And since its a very search engine friendly solution it should help you attract traffic more easily.
Once you get the board going after a year or so then you can investigate moving to another job board platform AFTER you have proved the site will succeed. Why invest money if you dont have to?
