On the Careers page, there are highlighted and non-highlighted job listings. What do these mean?

At first I thought it was a showing what I had in my profile, but I have jquery, so I'd expect A to be highlighted. I have java (expecting B to be highlighted). I don't have anything in C, yet it is highlighted. I have php and mysql and D is highlighted. Thus, I am confused what these colors are telling me. They look like they are attempting to help me, but I'm not sure how.

Highlighted jobs are a paid product.

Forgive my ignorance, can you explain what that means? Does that just mean they have a company page? – Andy Nov 9 '13 at 22:45
It means the person who purchased the job listing paid extra money to have the job highlighted blue in search results. – Nick Larsen Nov 9 '13 at 22:47
