How does this automation work?

Bardeen's playbook automates the process of saving job openings from a LinkedIn profile's current company directly to Airtable. For businesses looking to expand their team, keeping track of potential job candidates and open positions is crucial. This workflow makes it easy to capture job listings from LinkedIn without manual entry, ensuring your Airtable base is always up-to-date with the latest hiring opportunities.

Here's how this workflow saves LinkedIn job openings to Airtable:

  • Step 1: Scrape LinkedIn Profile - The Scraper is used to collect data from the LinkedIn profile that is currently open in your browser.
  • Step 2: Scrape Company Jobs Page - Bardeen then scrapes the jobs page link for the current company from the LinkedIn profile data obtained in the previous step.
  • Step 3: Access Job Listings URL - This step fetches the first URL from the list of job pages linked to the company.
  • Step 4: Extract Job Listings - Bardeen scrapes the job listings from the company's LinkedIn job page in the background.
  • Step 5: Scrape Individual Job Posts - Each job listing is individually scraped to gather detailed information such as the job title and description.
  • Step 6: Save to Airtable - Finally, the data from the job postings is added to your Airtable base, which acts as a powerful, flexible database for your recruitment efforts.

How to run the workflow

In the realm of LinkedIn, tracking down job openings while also staying informed about various companies can be quite the task. You're immersed in the quest for new career opportunities, but the sheer volume of profiles and openings can make it all feel like a labyrinth. What if there existed a way to simplify this process without the usual complexities?

This automation smoothly identifies the current company of any open LinkedIn profile and then combs through the platform to unearth available job positions within that same company. No need for constant tab-switching or scattered focus – you can gather all the data you need without the fuss.

For HR managers aiming to stay informed about their competitors' hiring endeavors, tracking rival companies' job listings becomes a straightforward endeavor, allowing them to strategize effectively rather than getting bogged down in the details.

This automation is all about simplifying your professional life, making the complex seem almost effortless while you focus on what truly matters.
