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.

Synchronize via Incremental Job Scraping

Keep your job listings up-to-date with source Employer websites by utilizing Synchronization option of Job Wrapping. Sync option will make sure only new jobs are added to your system and expire the vacancies removed from source websites.


Incremental scraping
Job wrapping synchronization feature provides incremental downloads to make sure you don’t overload source websites with excessive requests, but only download new jobs added to system.


Job Sync requirements:
Job Sync feature requires HTTP/XML posting interface on a target job board.
The interface is to provide “Add” and “Remove” commands.
It is also to be able to return job ID to spider upon successful posting.


Sync process:
1. Job wrapping runs search on Employer career center and assigns unique ID to each job / specific URL scraped.
2. Spider posts the job via HTTP/XML: posting interface of a Job Board returns unique job ID of each specific job posting.
3. Job wrapping service saves job ID from job board and links with Job ID of a Spider.
4. Next job scraping sessions are done by spider. If the job is gone from job search results: job spider sends Remove ID command to job board XML interface.
5. Job board removes/expires the job.
