LinkedIn Job Scraping Tool

LinkedIn Job Scraping Tool

About The Client

Our client is a forward-thinking recruitment agency renowned for its innovative approach to connecting top-tier candidates with esteemed companies. Our client wanted to find a new potential source for finding new corporate customers & leads of businesses who can utilize their help in recruitment efforts. The client identified that many businesses try to hire candidates from LinkedIn via LinkedIn’s Job Post feature, where you can post a job and interested candidates can apply. They found that many Job Posts on LinkedIn receive very minimal applications, and they felt that the companies posting such jobs are potential clients and can be targeted and pitched about recruitment services.

The Challenge

All of what our client desired could be done manually by going to LinkedIn’s Job post page, entering relevant keywords, adding the location, and putting all the required filters, but all of this had some issues. 

  1. Doing it manually is very time consuming.
  2. Doing it over and over again might get your account restricted by LinkedIn.
  3. LinkedIn’s native job search feature presented significant challenges as search results often disregarded applied filters, resulting in irrelevant listings. For an example, if you have used the filter that you only want to see the job posts having less than 10 applicants, you might still see job posts with 100 or more applicants.
  4. Lastly, manual search would have a high percentage of competitor companies sourcing candidates for third parties, such companies do not happen to be our client and would result in more time wastage in sorting them out.

The Solution

To overcome these challenges and optimize their job sourcing efforts, our client used our Web Scraping LinkedIn solution ‘LinkedIn Scraping Tool’. This powerful tool allowed them to scrape job listings based on specific keywords, locations, and custom input filters. Notably, the tool ensured that results comply with the applied filters, providing accurate and relevant job data.

How the tool works

  • Input: Users provide essential details in an Excel sheet, including their LinkedIn login credentials, targeted keywords, preferred locations, and custom filters native to LinkedIn.
  • Processing: The tool logs into LinkedIn using the provided credentials and commences the scraping process based on the specified inputs.
  • Output: The tool generates an Excel sheet containing job listings including the given keyword, from given location, and absolutely compliant with the entered search filters.

The Outcome

With the LinkedIn Scraping Tool, our client witnessed a transformation in their B2B lead finding process. The tool’s unique ability to identify job listings with relevant inputs including the jobs with less than 10 applicants empowered the client to target companies seeking candidates for their open positions. By reaching out to these companies and offering their expert hiring services, our client established invaluable partnerships, enabling them to cater to the hiring needs of a diverse range of companies. This strategic approach enhanced their reputation as a trusted recruitment agency and unlocked untapped markets, leading to remarkable business growth and client satisfaction.
