It appears Yahoo’s performance is declining, and their deal with Microsoft (Bing is going to become the Yahoo master of services) is impending. So they’re taking their “Hot Jobs” section – and selling it to the highest bidder.
They apparently need some extra money (not a strange thing to hear in these economic times). I don’t blame them, since they expect between $350 million and $500 million. The money they need as Google (and apparently Bing) are pushing their lowering search numbers.
