|· Why the fee for posting "Looking for Candidates" ads?|
The fee was introduced to help curb the flood of postings from head hunters who saw a posting to the Verification Guild as a no-cost, no-risk opportunity, not to generate revenue for myself or prevent postings.
However, recruiters are providing a valuable service (for which they should be compensated) of marketing the positions and sifting through several dozens of candidates. These are activities that would detract from an engineer's primary job of making sure a design is correct - which is an even more important (and costly) use of resources.
One also has to consider the consequences of not providing an avenue for recruiters to contact this audience, a highly desirable market segment. Spamming contributors would be their only option left.
