NAME ^

WWW::Search::AOL::Classifieds::Employment - class for searching Jobs Classifieds on AOL

SYNOPSIS ^

 use WWW::Search;
 my $oSearch = new WWW::Search('Aol');
 my $sQuery = WWW::Search::escape_query("unix c++ java");
 $oSearch->native_query($sQuery,
                        {'qcqs' => ':ca:'});
 while (my $res = $oSearch->next_result()) {
     print $res->company . "\t" . $res->title . "\t" . $res->change_date
         . "\t" . $res->location . "\n";
 }

DESCRIPTION ^

This class is a Aol specialization of WWW::Search. It handles making and interpreting Aol searches at http://classifiedplus.aol.com in category employment->JobSearch.

The returned WWW::SearchResult objects contain url, title, company, location and change_date fields.

OPTIONS ^

The following search options can be activated by sending a hash as the second argument to native_query().

Format / Treatment of Query Terms

The default is to match ALL keywords in your query.

{'QY' => 2} - to match at least one word
{'QY' => 5} - to match exact phrase

Restrict by Job Category

No restriction by default. To select jobs from a specific job category use the following option:

{'QVSSCAT' => $job_category}

Possible values of $job_category are the following:

Restrict by Company Name

{'QM' => $pattern}

Display jobs where company name matches $pattern.

Restrict by Location

No preference by default. Several options can restrict your search. Only one of the below listed options can be enabled at a time.

{'QREG' => $region} - to select a region

Regions can be:

{'qcqs' => $state_or_city} - more detailed selection

There are too many possible values to be listed here. See http://classifiedplus.aol.com in category employment->JobSearch for a full list. Here are some examples from that list: to select jobs only from California use {'qcqs' => ':ca:'}, for jobs from San Fransisco use {'qcqs' => 'san francisco:ca:807'}.

{'QZ' => $zip_code} - restrict by zip code.
