Who's Represented on indeed.ca?


Maybe someone at indeed.ca would respond to queries about the statistical composition of their database of jobs. I don't know. In any case, I wanted to see what I could find out for myself. I wanted to know which job boards are prominently represented on indeed.ca and about which companies might turn up too.

I needed a reasonably large sample. I therefore looked for 'retail sales' jobs within 50 km of Toronto. (I did not insist that the words 'retail' and 'sales' be in the titles of jobs since I was mainly interested just in obtaining a big sample.) Then I counted the number of appearance of each organisation claimed to be a source, that is, marked with 'class=source' in the HTML source for the indeed.ca pages. This table shows what I found. Please be aware that each indeed.ca page typically includes 23 job advertisements, which is to say that I included what indeed calls 'sponsored jobs'.
