Recommender Jobs to Users: A simple approach

Pete Alisher


There are various ways to approach the problem of recommending jobs to users based on their profile. Here's a basic approach:


Identify the key factors that describe a job:


Job title, job description, required skills, experience level, industry, location, salary range, etc.

Identify the key factors that describe a user's profile:


  • Step 1: Education level, work experience, skills, interests, location, etc.
  • Step 2: Create a model that maps the user profile to a set of recommended jobs based on the factors identified in step 1.
  • Step 3: Train the model using historical data on job applications and user profiles. You can use a variety of techniques such as collaborative filtering, content-based filtering, or hybrid approaches.


Once the model is trained, use it to recommend jobs to new users based on their profile.

Evaluate the performance of the model and fine-tune it as necessary to improve the recommendations.

Note that this is a high-level overview of the process, and the specific details of each step will depend on the specifics of your data and requirements.


Below is an example of recommeder system for Jobs and User profiles.





# Import required libraries

import pandas as pd


from sklearn.feature_extraction.text import TfidfVectorizer

from sklearn.metrics.pairwise import cosine_similarity


# Load job data

job_data = pd.read_csv('job_data.csv')


# Load user data

user_data = pd.read_csv('user_data.csv')


# Vectorize job titles and descriptions

job_vectorizer = TfidfVectorizer(stop_words='english')

job_vectors = job_vectorizer.fit_transform(job_data['title'] + ' ' + job_data['description'])


# Vectorize user skills

user_vectorizer = TfidfVectorizer(stop_words='english')

user_vectors = user_vectorizer.fit_transform(user_data['skills'])


# Compute cosine similarity between job and user vectors

similarity_matrix = cosine_similarity(user_vectors, job_vectors)


# Get top 3 recommended jobs for each user

recommendations = []

for i in range(similarity_matrix.shape[0]):

    top_jobs = job_data.iloc[similarity_matrix[i].argsort()[::-1][:3]]



# Print recommendations for each user

for i in range(len(recommendations)):

    print(f"Recommendations for user {i+1}:")
