How does a job aggregator work?

Category: Job Aggregator

A job aggregator is a bit like Google for jobs. It’s a search engine, but just for vacancy listings. You search the job you’re interested in. Then, behind the scenes, the technology extracts job postings or job ads from databases and company websites all over the web. Then pulls all the relevant job listings it finds into one easily-readable place.

Why use a job aggregator?

Just like Google gives you relevant stuff when you search, a job aggregator filters jobs based on a whole range of things. That could be search limits around things like employee benefits, or job location. Jobseekers get to choose what’s important to them, then see a list of suitable jobs without needing to check different job boards. It’s quick and easy and provides candidates with the best results.

Are job aggregators good value?

On the employer side, engaging with a job aggregator cuts effort, saves time and is lean on the hiring budget. Our experience is that using a powerful aggregator is a great chance for companies to get high-quality employees to fill vacancies. This is because the chances of getting applications from qualified candidates multiply when a job ad is more visible. It’s also an affordable and easily-manageable form of advertising.

Benefits of job aggregators

  • Many job aggregator sites let you can directly contact jobseekers on their mailing lists. This is often “job alerts” sent straight to the inbox of qualified, interested candidates.
  • You benefit from the time and effort that the marketing teams behind aggregators put into making their listings visible on the web. That means your jobs are more likely turn up in online search results than if they were just on your organisation’s page alone.
  • You enjoy access to the unique technologies and approaches aggregators use to filter applicants. VERCIDA is proud to have a world-first artificial intelligence interface built into its job search. This means jobseekers are offered job suggestions based not just on their CV, but on how their skills and experience could be applied to a variety of other roles. This widens the pool of great candidates available.
