Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

So SO has an API for most of the site(questions, members, etc.), but I was unable to find any information on an public API for the Careers site. Does one exist? If not, is there any plans for one?

For jobs, our “API” is the RSS feed. You can get a feed of any search of jobs, look for the RSS icon in the search form in the right-hand sidebar, eg here.

We also have an API for employers to post jobs.

What use cases are you hoping for in an API for Careers?

I am writing an API library that gets job postings for a number of websites that have public APIs. I've done a number of sites, and decided to look at SO. In the end, I am simply looking for a way to programmatically get a list of the jobs on the Careers site. This would include a list of the jobs using the search parameters, but also an API call to get the information on a specific job. Seems that the RSS feed can give me the jobs, but I don't really see a way to get the job information other than scraping the HTML from the page. – Eclipsed4utoo Dec 11 '12 at 14:14
Looking at the API for employers, it would be great to be able to make an API call and get this back for an individual job. – Eclipsed4utoo Dec 11 '12 at 14:16
But it seems that RSS only contains the most recently posted 25 jobs.It would be great if there's a way to get all the listings easily. (e.g. like Github Jobs API – syg Nov 5 '13 at 21:57
Any progress with this? – Juho Vepsäläinen Dec 4 '13 at 10:41
Is there an API for resumes too? I'd love to be able to snag all the data in my resume and use it on my personal site. – Jason Lydon Sep 9 '14 at 14:08
+1 for API for resumes. It is not easy to keep in synch: CV, linkedin, and careers profile. – Skarab Nov 21 '14 at 18:07
+1 on that one. I'd love to see an API for updating my profile / resume. I'm using SO careers, LinkedIn, ResearchGate and others, as well as posting my CV as a pdf on my own site. Having to update them all manually is a pain. Often, it just doesn't get done. :-/ So I'm writing some scripts to update my profiles everywhere from a single source. – mhelvens Jun 5 '15 at 19:02
what about the user profile API ? – Ahmad Hajjar Mar 16 at 10:30
+1 for API for CV/resume. I'd like to have my details in one place (a plain text file) and then sync that with Stackoverflow, LinkedIn etc. At the moment I don't really use SO Careers because it's too much effort to keep yet another profile in sync. – pwaring May 3 at 14:15
