How to make job postings 1,000 times more valuable

I don’t know when this changed, but when it did, it made a job posting lose most of it’s value:

Compensation: Commensurate with experience

Are you kidding?

Based on the title, and the region, you can guess a certain job would pay between $80k and $105k.

But then you go through the interview process and finally do the salary dance, and learn that the company wants to pay someone $45k for the job.

You just wasted time, mental energy, and perhaps money, to find out that the job’s compenation was 1/2 of what you thought it would.

This is why job seekers feel disrespected.

I know you don’t put the salary range for a myriad of reasons…. but doing this is akin to blind dating.  It would be really, really nice to know what kind of salary you are budgeting for a job before we get to invested in the process!

I doubt this will come back, but if it did, we could waste far less time in the job search process.
