Web Scraping for Recruiters

Web scraping is extracting and saving data from websites. How can Recruiters benefit from it? A lot.

As an example, imagine getting a contact list of conference attendees parsed into an MS Excel file, making it easy to narrow down to the right professionals. Alternatively, if you are recruiting Software Engineers, imagine that you can get an Excel file with all Github members who code in a given language and live in a given city. Scraping gives Sourcing a huge productivity boost. Of course, scraping needs to be used responsibly and with an awareness of laws and user agreements.

In this class, we will explain the what, why, and how of web scraping for recruiters. You don't need to be very technical to adopt the tools and techniques presented in this class, but there will be some learning curve.

Just bring your curiosity and enthusiasm, and we'll be happy to help you become an expert.
