The fact that job boards are a hotly contested market in which a lot of money is earned, was clear to me at the latest, since someone told me that there are spent by some 400.000 euros a month for Google Adsense. However, until now I did not realize that some of these providers even resort to unfair legal remedies when they feel threatened.

A special job exchange, which arrived well

The story I learned via nineetz.de almost took off my shoes: in 2009 Leander Wattig started his project “I do something with books” to network the book industry.

This included a small jobbureau specializing in the book industry. The offer was free of charge, Wattig earned it directly nothing, indirectly it has benefited probably by the attention.

The offense: Too much success

A nice idea that was well received. Obviously too good for some, because as Leander Wattig wrote, it was precisely this success that was such a big thorn in the side of some people that he had to deal with one Warning was threatened.

“From the beginning there were a few people who criticized me for offering such a platform free of charge. Why? Because I'm taking sales away from other players. “Why do you want to actively harm XY?” Was asked […] With a similar reason, I was now specifically warned for the first time by someone who seemed to feel threatened as a competitor. ”

The dreamer in spe can look forward: Wattig has taken the job exchange from the net. Not because he fears the warning law, that would be even more beautiful, but because he does not want to deal with it.

Warning instead of innovation

Dear Jobbörsen-operator, how are you on it? Are your sales not so high? Maybe this is due to a business model? The crosspro research duration survey on the best job exchange has just shown that special providers and job search machines are in the forefront of user-friendliness.

Perhaps now, what I have already written here and here is true: that the model job market, at least the general, due to their limited functionality gradually survive? And maybe you have to resort to such means?

But dismissing, instead of developing own, good ideas, comes unfortunately again and again and says a lot about the kleerstisteige attitude of the exhilarator.
