After running those commands a new window will appear with 3 tabs.

The first tab contains a button that will connect to the Reddit API and will download the latest posts from the selected Subreddit, the default one is r/ForHire.

Those posts will be filtered between For Hire and Hiring, or their equivalents in each subreddit. You can apply your custom keywords and blacklists by checking their respective boxes.
