Tracking your client’s or competitor’s hiring

I have been trialling different tools for tracking when a competitor or client posts a job, and the best one seems to be www.versionista.com  It works by crawling a website’s pages and comparing differences every 24 hours (or hourly, if you want).  We always set the target to the careers page URL which is the relevant page for us. What’s nice is it emails you and shows you the changes and click-through to show a side-by-side comparison.

 

At Kandidate we now get notified when one of our clients has posted a new role.  For candidates this could be useful when that company you love posts the role you’ve been looking for.

 

They offer a 30-day free trial and then free monitoring for up to 5 URLs or $19 per month for up to 20 URLs, which seems pretty fair.  It offers hourly monitoring and instant email notification.

Example above for one of our clients, showing the changes on the careers page over 24 hours.  Send me your thoughts on other ways to use versionista @alexvank

Perhaps also give Trackly a go - it was originally built to track vacancy pages and so should work really well for anything you throw at it! Here's what it looks like when it finds a new vacancy.

It's free to use while in beta. Full disclosure - I'm the founder!
