NAME ^

WWW::Scraper::Request::Job - Canonical Request - skills, locations, payrate

SYNOPSIS ^

    use WWW::Scraper::Request::Job;

    $rqst = new WWW::Scraper::Request::Job;
    $rqst->skills(['Perl', '!Java']);
    $rqst->locations('CA-San Jose');
    $rqst->payrate('100000/A');

DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides a canonical taxonomy for specifying requests to search engines (via Scraper modules). Request::Job is targeted toward job searches.

See WWW::Scraper::ScraperPOD or WWW::Scraper::Request for a description of how this interfaces with Scraper modules.

FIELDS ^

skills

The skills field should be a string, or a reference to an array of strings, specifying the skills associated with the target job. The semantics here is that these will be AND-ed by the search engine (i.e., the jobs found will match all the skills).

Use a '+' symbol inside the string to specify "skill A OR skill B".

Use a '!' operator at the beginning of the string to specify that that skill should NOT appear in the job title. (This is the only place '!' is recognized in this way.)

locations

The locations field should be a string, or a reference to an array of strings, specifying the acceptable geographic locations for the job results. The string(s) should be in the form "SS-Ccccccc", where "SS" is the two letter state name, and "Cccccc" is the city name (properly capitalized).

It is the responsibility of the Scraper module to translate these strings into the appropriate location codes used by their search engines. This may mean an extremely large lookup table, but there you are! It is also probable that the Scraper module must postSelect based on this field, since there's seldom a one-to-one match between our canonical location and a target search engine's location taxonomy.

We've provided an example of how this is done in Brainpower.pm.

(International locations must be handled specially, per Scraper module).

payrate

This is the desired hourly rate, in dollars (optionally append with '/H'). To specify an annual salary, append the rate with the characters '/A'. To specify a monthly salary, append the rate with the characters '/M'. To specify a weekly salary, append the rate with the characters '/W'.
