Video Demo: Web Scraping for Sourcers and Recruiters With Import.io

Recently, we shared a video demo of Outwit Hub. It’s a great tool for scraping data from the internet. The problem with Outwit is that it requires some coding knowledge, a skill which many recruiters and sourcers do not possess.

For practitioners wanting to take full advantage of web scraping without having to know how to code, import.io is a great solution. Aaron Lintz recently discovered the tool and he agreed to show us how to use it during a short Google+ Hangout ON AIR. 

Have you found another web based solution similar to Outwit or import.io? Let us know in the comments below.
