Job post data scraping from the web is the process of gathering vacancy posts from job boards or companies’ websites. There are a lot of platforms and job boards that aggregate job posts: Indeed, Glassdoor, Craigslist, LinkedIn, SimplyHired, Jobster, Dice, Facebook Careers, and more. And it is possible to scrape each of them almost in real time!
This service is very helpful for recruiting companies, recruiters, or businesses that are engaged in this area.
If you want to do research on the vacancy market, you can get a variety of data regarding a particular industry or region. We can set the data feed and collect data over a period of time of your choosing. After that, data can be visualized so that you can get a clear picture of salary trends, the demand for particular professionals, and a ton of other helpful information.
There is one nuance—jobs should be scraped once they occur at the original source. Otherwise, your data gets outdated very quickly.
Each job post can be categorized (by title, description, salary, skills, working experience, etc.) for convenience. So you have the ability to aggregate, categorize, and select those that match your purpose with the help of data scraping and parsing technologies.
Another huge opportunity is monitoring companies websites. Many companies have a career section on their website. Depending on your goals, you can scrape and analyze and monitor jobs from one company’s webpage or from hundreds.
