Let’s set it up!
The first step is to create an Airtable with all the information you want to save for the FlexJobs job posts.
Bardeen will get information from the currently opened FlexJobs job search page and extract information like position, details, location, company image, job post link, and more. It will then save all this information to your Airtable once the setup is complete.
You will be redirected to install the browser extension when you run it for the first time. Bardeen will also prompt you to integrate Airtable.
Click the “Pin it” button at the top of this page to get this automation saved to your Playbooks. If it’s your first time using Bardeen, you will be redirected to install the extension.
Activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard) and click on the playbook card. The setup flow will start.
You will be asked to specify a database and the maximum number of job posts to extract. Skip this field if you want to get all the available job posts. After you choose the database and number, you will get a prompt to map the information to the fields in Airtable.
The left side consists of all the fields Bardeen will scrape for you. On the right side, specify the fields in Airtable that you want to associate with the information on the left. If you don’t want a piece of information, leave that field empty, and it will be skipped. That’s it!
Click on “Save Input” and checkmark Airtable. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook.
Whenever you want to save job posts from a FlexJobs search page, complete your search and navigate to the page.
Activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on a Windows machine on your keyboard) and run this playbook. It will scrape the number of job posts that you specified and extract all the information from the job posts. It will then save the information to the Airtable that you specified in Step #1.
This automation is fantastic for individuals actively searching for employment opportunities. It simplifies the process by automatically extracting job listings from the FlexJobs search page and saving them to an Airtable. Users can quickly scan through the compiled list, access important details, and evaluate potential job options without the hassle of manually recording or bookmarking each opportunity.
With the extracted job information neatly organized in an Airtable, users can easily compare and evaluate different job listings. They can review factors such as job titles, companies, locations, and requirements side by side. This feature proves valuable when deciding which positions align best with their skills, interests, and career objectives. It enables users to make more informed decisions and saves them from the time-consuming task of jumping back and forth between various websites or notes.
Keeping track of job applications can become challenging, especially when applying for multiple positions. This automation helps users maintain an organized record of their job applications in one central location. By utilizing the Airtable, users can track application dates, statuses, follow-ups, and any additional notes. This functionality streamlines the application process, ensuring important details are easily accessible and enabling users to stay on top of their job search progress.
You can also edit the playbook and add your next action to further customize the automation.
