Andreas Schober/ Manfred Füllsack : Text Mining in Job Advertisements – a Method for Labour Market Research Exemplified by Green Jobs in Austria

The environmental engineering industry has been one of the hopefuls of the Austrian economy, now for several years. Among other things, this is reflected in growing labour market interests for sustainable professions, for so-called green jobs. However, when looking at corresponding descriptions, it is often unclear, what these green jobs are and what distinguishes them from other professions. The article at hand attempts to find here answers with the means of computer-aided text analysis of online job advertisements from the first half of 2017. As an add-on, the analysis here wants to draw attention to the possibilities of modern computer methods for social research.
