Simple Job search on GitHub & LiVe
As I need to keep an eye on the Irish market (an sometimes abroad) I spent a few hours putting together a simple ws project you can download here http://github.com/mamatucci/JobSites/
It’s a dummy ASP.NET page that has a list of option (job sites) and a IFRAME where the actual web page page is loaded, so you can reloaded in sequence them with a click on the list on the right, rather then going and placing the keyword and (optionally) the region/city where to search.
The usage is easy: select the 2 option What and Where and one job site on the right column and click Reload
Then click on another web site on the right and the page will reload it with the same what and where selection … saving you a lot of time…
(note the Region is kept in the address in this example as the ws support it in the search query)
Open in a new page careerjet looking for [ETL,Ireland]
How to add a new site?
The procedure is very easy; let’s do an example for http://www.cwjobs.co.uk/
Put XXX in the keyword (it will be mapped to _what_ in the 1st screen) and YYY in region (mapped to _Where_), something like this
Now copy and past it and use the string to update the job panel at the bottom
Cwjobs |http://www.cwjobs.co.uk/JobSearch/Results.aspx?Keywords=XXX&LTxt=YYY&Radius=5 |UK|true
Note> substitute the & with & as this is an xml doc so you need to escape that …
The websites that uses session state rather than query string will not work as you cannot use this approach…
A time saver function is to use the Dump panel to open all the website in one go…
and scrolling down
I’ve found this interesting platform to deploy asp.net pages on the cloud
So I deployed the project on it…
You can use it on the web without need to installing it 😉
I hope it helps!
