Learn how to export your search as a PDF, export table data to Excel, or download images of charts of graphs.



About downloading your search

In addition to saving a search or sharing a search, you may also want to download data from your search as a PDF, Excel file, or image.


Downloading your search as a PDF is the most popular way to share information. This method generates a stylized report that you can share with key stakeholders. However, you can also download the data from individual tables to Excel, or take a snapshot of specific charts or graphs.



Downloading your search as a PDF report

  1. Click the download icon in the upper-right corner of the screen. This icon is present on all of the search results pages within Recruit.


  2. A modal window will appear. Here, you can configure the PDF file. You have a few different options:

    1. The recruiter report is a 5-page report that contains:

  • Hiring difficulty

  • Relative supply

  • Supply and demand

  • Posting duration

  • Gender and ethnic diversity (for US searches)

    1. The hiring manager report is a 3-page report that contains:

  • Hiring difficulty

  • Relative supply

  • Supply and demand

  • Posting duration

    1. The data appendix is the exact same for the recruiter and hiring manager reports. The 10-page appendix includes:

  • Competitive concentration and demand by competitors

  • Sample competitor postings

  • Alternative locations table
    Please note that the PDF export does not include the map since the map’s main value is its interactivity. To export the map, we recommend taking a snapshot. See below for instructions on exporting data visualizations as an image.

  1. You can also scroll down within the modal to email a copy of this PDF to yourself or anyone else.


  2. Once you’ve configured your report, click Generate. Once we’ve finished formatting your search as a PDF, a window will appear prompting you to save the PDF to your computer. If you opt to include the data appendix, the main report and appendix will be exported as a ZIP file.
