Script Summary: Removes almost 100 recruiter job listings on Dave's Korean Job Board
This script now removes just under 100 recruiters job listings on Dave's ESL Cafe Korean Job Board.
Here's what it does:
Problem: Recruiter ads on Dave's ESL Cafe obscure Direct Employer ads
More appealing ads direct from employers (the people for whom you will actually be working) can be hard to spot at a glance, since they are outflanked vociferously by recruitment company ads, screaming in All-Caps and with poor grammar:
"HERE ARE BRILLANT TEACHING POSITIONS & RELIABLE SCHOOL ,CLICK HERE!"
Sure, there are some reputable recruitment companies out there, but most recruiter ads are either abstract or misleading, falling on a spectrum ranging from the general "We exist! Email us!" to specific but unrealistic guarantees of "You will receive 2.6 million won and 4 weeks of vacation!".
Also, many of those already in Korea visit the job board to update themselves on how the Korean job market is evolving. In this case, recruiter ads do nothing to help.
Solution: Wipe Away All Recruiter Ads
1. Works on a long list of recruitment companies that have posted on Dave's in the past. I will update the list as necessary, but you will have to redownload the userscript for each update
2. Completely erases recruiter posts as though they never existed
3. Changes the Browser's title bar to show how many recruiter ads were removed (Oct 9: 240 ads removed)
