The biggest job boards in the world are LinkedIn, Monster, and of course, Indeed. Scraping this data could be very useful for a sales process.
In this guide we’ll go over how to scrape the job posts, enrich with Clay, and build out your prospecting lists so you’re ready to start
Step 1: Finding Your Page to Scrape
First we need to hone in on the type of job role and the area you’re looking for.
In the example above, we’re going to look for listings/companies searching for software engineers and in New York City.
Let’s take a look at what we need to scrape.
We need to specifically scrape the role and the company name.
Step 2: Using Instant Data Scraper
You’re going to need this chrome extension.
Go ahead and go to the Indeed page you’re wanting to scrape.
Once you’re there, you’re going to click the Chrome Extension and it will pop it up.
You’re going to change the minimum delay to 10 seconds and click “Start crawling”.
Once you’ve let it run for a little bit, click “stop” and now we’re ready to start enriching the data.
Step 3: Enriching with Clay
Once you’re done scraping, go ahead click “CSV”.
Now you should have a CSV being downloaded and you can now import directly into Clay.
Now we’re going to want to clean up our data and only display the necessary information we need.
In the image below, I only kept the Job Role and the Company Name. You can choose to edit the name of the columns if you’d like.
And now you’re ready to enrich Clay and find decision makers for those handling the job postings! In this article here, I go over step-by-step on how to find the decision makers with limited information like only having “Company Name”.
