Submission + - 90% of Dice "tech jobs" are fake

hoapres writes: This has been posted over at the Dice discussion board.

90% of Dice job ads are fake.

The majority of the fake ads are due to "broadcasting". A "broadcast" is when multiple agencies are competing for the same job. If 10 agencies advertise on Dice for the same job then Dice counts this as 10 jobs.

Dice goes around and peddles the bogus job count claiming 84,XXX tech jobs when most likely less than 9,000 jobs actually exist.
