Abstract: To a modern enterprise, it is important to be aware of the development/change of personnel qualification requirements so that its human resource management policy and plan can keep up with the change. Advantages of electronic recruiting on the web have attracted more and more employers. Job advertising web pages reflect changing knowledge and experience of personnel qualification requirements from the practice of different companies. It is possible, to some extent, to find the necessary information from these web pages by automated information processing. In this paper, we demonstrate how to use the web mining method to discover the latest information about an occupation. In a case study, job advertising websites including Yahoo! Careers (HotJobs) and FlipDog are investigated to find US delivery driver qualification requirements. The results are compared with those of another survey for German drivers by studying traditional paper-based job advertisements.
Keywords: delivery drivers; electronic recruiting; human resource management; personnel qualification; web mining; job advertising; e-recruitment; information processing; data mining.
