Replicate jobs to post to multiple locations and categories

SpiderMount can duplicate any vacancy and post multiple jobs altering selected field, i.e. location, job type etc. Therefore one does not have to copy jobs manually and change fields. Spider generates multiple jobs by adding extra locations or other data to original single job content.

 

Job boards and aggregators requiring same job to be posted separately to appear in candidate search for each specific location benefit from spider replication tool. Job scraping software will replicate original job content adding relevant location and post it to the job aggregator. Normally this feature is used by job boards and aggregators that do not support multiple searchable location selection for one vacancy.

 

For example, employer has a developer opening in London and a list of new job titles and locations where the opening is available as well. SpiderMount saves employer’s time by simply duplicating vacancy and altering title and location field. Afterward spider will post number of openings to job distribution platform.

Easy preview & verification for scraped jobs XML

SpiderMount releases preview feature for its job scraping service. Latest update is aimed to simplify verification and approval for new job scrapes configured. Easy preview allows to verify scraped job description formatting, i.e. line spacing, bold fonts, paragraphs, bullet points, etc, as well as fields mapping.

 

Comparing to standard XML view, HTML preview does not require additional parsing or specific knowledge: user can validate configuration of the scraped data in one click. Easy to understand preview drastically decreases time spent on new job scraping results approval.

First 750 chars of job description provide reasonable preview to check formatting and get an idea on what title job description relates to. Whilst keeping job listing in a concise format for quick job scrolling within browser window. Moreover preview is a real time conversion of a live XML file. Therefore it always displays exact content offered by XML file.

 

Create jobs XML feeds for job boards & aggregators

SpiderMount provide an opportunity to publish your jobs via XML feeds (syndicate or broadcast) to aggregator websites and other job boards: Indeed, Oodle, Simplyhired, Trovit, Juju, Jooble, Adzuna etc.

 

Job wrapping software scrapes vacancies data from your job website and configures jobs into requested format.  SpiderMount job wrapping service then adds unique ID to the job and maps fields according to aggregator website requirements.

SpiderMount integrates a job taxonomy service

Most of the modern job boards are benefiting from job wrapping or spidering services. However, they still encounter an issue with extracting correct industry category for the vacancies posted by employers. SpiderMount introduces new service to resolve the problem for automated job scraping – Job Taxonomy.

 

Job Taxonomy is automated industry/category recognition with the mapping based on available job data, i.e. job title. Online service analyses jobs content and defines relevant industry category data.

 

There are two options available to integrate service into your current solution or service:

 

Option 1: Job Taxonomy API

Job boards, ATSes, online recruitment services can send jobs XML data to JobTaxonomy API and obtain Industry category IDs mapped to jobs.

Option 2: Bundle With Job Wrapping service

Job spidering service in combination with JobTaxonomy scrapes jobs from employers’ websites lacking Industry Category listings and automatically defines relevant job industry sector/category with further update in the scraped data.

Jobs via Job Wrapping vs. Aggregators

Job board businesses get jobs supplied via Job Wrapping vs aggregator feeds: scraped content becomes part of database and serves SEO, full job data is available for job seekers, applicants stay with a job board instead of getting redirected to a feed owner site.

 

No applicants are lost 

Aggregator feed leads job seekers away from a job board. Job board is not just losing an applicant, but any application performance data that can be used to sell to Employer. Job wrapping supplies full jobs data that becomes authentic part of job board database. So job board obtains applicant resume, keeps applicant within own website, employer recognizes job board as a source of application.

 

Improved SEO: more of regularly updated content

Job boards benefit from both relevant content amount increase and regular updates. Jobs are updated daily keeping job board vacancy data fresh and attractive to search engines.

 

Employer upsell: automatic job posting

Job boards can save customers time by offering automatic job posting. Job wrapping service will update jobs daily: remove expired job listings, add new jobs.

Jobs Categorization via Taxonomy

Problem:

Sometimes jobs copied from employer career website or ATS listing do not have a category that can be easily mapped to a relevant setting within target database.

 

Solution:

Taxonomy feature is available for all job wrapping customers. Taxonomy mapping settings can be added upon request.
