                #import pdb;pdb.set_trace()

    def remove_a_tags_and_urls(self, job):
        soup = BeautifulSoup(job.rewrite, 'html.parser')
        for a_tag in soup.find_all('a'):
        text = str(soup)
        url_pattern = r'https?://\S+|www\.\S+'
        clean_text = re.sub(url_pattern, '', text)
        final_soup = BeautifulSoup(clean_text, 'html.parser')
        job.rewrite = str(final_soup)
        #import pdb;pdb.set_trace()
