I am trying to to parse the feed for stackoverflow jobs( . Though the webpage shows relevant skill tags, but in the RSS feed, the skills don't exist. Is there any alternate way to get the skill set listings there?

It would be very helpful and convenient if stackoverflow team facilitates the skills listing in jobs feed. Thanks.
