How to scrape Indeed job listings at scale

Indeed is the largest job posting website in the US, Canada, and the world with 225 million resumes. Indeed also happens to be a goldmine for recruiters, companies, and job seekers wanting to tap into their data. But collecting this data manually is time-consuming.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to scrape Indeed job listings from different pages at scale using Hexomatic. 

Step 1: Create a new scraping recipe

Step 2: Add the web page URL

Add the web page URL.

Step 3: Select elements to scrape

Once the page has loaded, click on any element you want to capture.

Step 4: Scrape data from more pages

As only a small amount of data is displayed on the first page, you need to go to the next pages to scrape more data. 

You can use pagination to automatically scrape data from the next pages.

Use advanced pagination

Here, we will use the Advanced pagination, using Gap option to scrape the data from the next pages automatically. 

Step 1: Go to the website

Open the targeted web page in your browser and get to the 2nd page of the job listing and capture it. 

Step 2: Select Advanced pagination action

Go back to the scraping recipe builder and add the advanced pagination action. 

Step 3: Add the URL and page number

In the popup window, paste the captured URL. 

Put the page numbers you’d like to paginate.  As the pages are displayed in gaps, you need to use the Gap option of Advanced pagination.

Then, click Proceed. 

Step 3: Save the recipe

Click Save to complete the scraping process. 

If you run this scraping recipe in a workflow, you will get the results like this:
