Job boards are the sites that helps connect employers with job seekers
. Employers can post their job postings to invite applications from eligible job seekers. The main asset of a job board website is the huge number of job postings to display. They get these naturally from companies looking for employees. This data is what makes the site rich and useful for its users. What if the job board site still lacks in the volume of job postings?
Web scraping is used to aggregate huge amounts of job postings from all around the web at one place. The feeds scraped from various websites can be displayed on a job board making it rich with job postings.
Job boards set up crawlers to crawl and extract data from source websites that contain job postings data. These sites are crawled regularly so that newer listings are not missed. Some job boards still use manual methods to crawl data from the web which is not cost efficient at all. But the best alternative is to depend on a dedicated web scraping service to cover your data scraping requirements.
