In this 1-hour long project-based course, you will create a simple pipeline to automate the process of Job search using Python and Selenium. Find the right set of specific tools & skills you need to learn to fill in the gaps of knowledge to have higher chances of getting hired and identify the current Job openings and the roles for the subject area of your choice using various visualization techniques from the generated data. While searching for a new role It becomes laborious to continually check each website to see what new roles have been posted since there are so many different websites, which list different jobs and at different times. Individuals end up relying on advertisements and do not reach the 50th or even the 10th page of Job search portals hence missing out on an opportunity which could have been in line with their expectations. In this project, we will learn to tackle these issues by scraping multiple pages and visualize this large dataset in one space and gain insights into the current job market.
