Job Description Mining to Understand Work-Integrated Learning
Chopra, Shivangi; Golab, Lukasz
International Educational Data Mining Society, Paper presented at the International Conference on Educational Data Mining (EDM) (11th, Raleigh, NC, Jul 16-20, 2018)
Work-integrated learning, also known as co-operative education, allows students to alternate between on-campus classes and off-campus work terms. This provides an enhanced learning experience for students and a talent pipeline for employers. We observe that co-operative job postings are a rich source of information about the required skills, working environment and company culture. We present a text mining methodology to extract and cluster informative terms from unstructured job descriptions, and we demonstrate the utility of our methodology on a co-op job posting corpus from a large North American university.
