Problem

IIT Jobs wanted to develop a semantic search solution to further their cause of helping people find better job opportunities irrespective of its nature and location.

Process

We divided work into 4 modules

  1. Search Module
  2. Scraper Module
  3. Information Extraction Module
  4. Application Module

Description

Search Module

  • The search query entered by the user is given as input to the Search module which is searched on the Internet to obtain a list of URLs (mostly job postings).
  • The Search Module intelligently identifies if a given link refers to a webpage having a list of job postings or a single job posting.

Scraper Module

  • The Scraper Module efficiently scrapes data from any website given as input to the module.
  • Any conventional Scraping service would return output in the form of lines however the Scraper module identifies this as one chunk of data thereby allowing better information extraction.

Information Extraction Module

  • The Information Extraction Module performs intelligent information retrieval on the data scraped from the scraper module by the elimination of unwanted page content like sidebar, navigation bar or menu or anything that is irrelevant for our ML model.
  • For supporting data point identification, Named Entity Recognizer is implemented along with a comprehensive dictionary for some of the data points like a Job title.

Application Module

  • The Application Module is the user interaction module that takes user input in the form of the search query and carries out all the processing efficiently.
  • Unlike popular job portals, this portal does not require a user to specify the location, job title or company for which he/she is looking for.

The Results

The newly developer job portal brings you the results scraped directly from the Internet that is best suited to your needs.

For future improvements, we plan to improve information extraction techniques, introduce a chat mechanism to refine search results & provide an option to let users add multiple resumes.
