Until recently job seeking has been a tricky, tedious and time consuming process, because people looking for a new position had to collect information from many different sources.

Our work aims to find out relationships between jobs and people skills making use of data from LinkedIn users' public profiles. Semantic associations arise by applying Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA). We use the mined semantics to obtain a hierarchical clustering of job positions and to build a job recommendation system. The outcome proves the effectiveness of our method in recommending job positions. Anyway, we argue that our approach is definitely general, because the extracted semantics could be worthy not only for job recommendation systems but also for recruiting systems.

Abstract

Until recently job seeking has been a tricky, tedious and time consuming process, because people looking for a new position had to collect information from many different sources. Job recommendation systems have been proposed in order to automate and simplify this task, also increasing its effectiveness. However, current approaches rely on scarce manually collected data that often do not completely reveal people skills. Our work aims to find out relationships between jobs and people skills making use of data from LinkedIn users' public profiles. Semantic associations arise by applying Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA). We use the mined semantics to obtain a hierarchical clustering of job positions and to build a job recommendation system. The outcome proves the effectiveness of our method in recommending job positions. Anyway, we argue that our approach is definitely general, because the extracted semantics could be worthy not only for job recommendation systems but also for recruiting systems. Furthermore, we point out that both the hierarchical clustering and the recommendation system do not require parameters to be tuned.
