Reuters is reporting that Yahoo! is considering a sale of job search site HotJobs. Purportedly they are seeking a buyout from a competitor such as Monster.com or CareerBuilder.com.
The rumor is floating at an interesting time. In the past week, chatter has been stirred up about Microsoft and Yahoo! once again talking about a search deal. If Yahoo! truly is looking to get out of the search game, then dumping HotJobs makes sense.
And although Microsoft has been focusing on winning over niche areas of search, I guess job search isn't one of them. Otherwise, they would seem a more obvious suitor.
What do you think? Should Yahoo! shed HotJobs? Share your opinion in the comments section below.
