While doing a Job search, we came across many aspirants who have less idea about the prospects and trends about the openings in their areas of interest, so we at factlabs.in thought of displaying it in an Infographic using Infogr.am and extracting data using import.io Magic API as primary tool.
We extracted data using Import.io Magic API from one of the the most popular Jobs website in India.
After some minor cleanup of the downloaded data, we used a small Python script to get the most used bigrams in the ‘key skills’ column to arrive at their occurance percentage.
The output of this, we used to create a word cloud chart in Infogr.am, and another data set of the extracted data was just uploaded as it was using the Pie Chart functionality.
The Result was a clean and nice Inforgraphic like this:
Having tried hands-on various scraping and visualization tools, we are pretty sure that there is no other tools available which can be leveraged so easily with quick turn-around time to make quality Visualizations charts which are so Informative and decision inciting like we made in this example.
Kudos to both Import.io and Infogr.am teams!
