It makes no sense to charge the provider. These jobs are at the bottom of the economic scale. It takes advantage of the people who need this work to remove their access to it unless they can afford to pay for it. These jobs used to be available directly online or in ads. It’s not like charging a search fee to someone who is going to be landing a 100k job. Charging people who may be desperate for work and need this access is unfair. It’s not even as though they only charge on a percentage basis if the person actually gets hired. Seems exploitative.

Too many hidden charges , they will nickel and dime you to death. Be very careful when you navigate their site. It's a amazing concept , but be wary.
