Table of contents

Introduction

The Job Cities endpoint facilitates access to a comprehensive list of cities where job listings are available within the jobdata API database. This endpoint empowers users to filter job posts based on specific geographical locations, enabling more targeted job searches tailored to individual preferences and requirements.

Endpoint Overview

Endpoint: /api/jobcities

Method: GET

Authorization Required: Yes

Description: Retrieves a list of all cities where job listings are available within the jobdata API database. This endpoint is essential for users who wish to narrow down job searches based on geographical locations.

Query and Filter Parameters

The jobcities_list operation supports several parameters that allow you to refine your search for cities. These parameters can be used to filter the cities list based on certain criteria such as the name, country code, and pagination options.

  • country_code: Filter cities by their ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code. This parameter allows you to limit the search to cities within a specific country.
  • asciiname: Filter cities by their ASCII name. It's useful for ignoring diacritics and for integration in systems that do not support UTF-8.
  • name: Filter cities by their name. This is useful for finding cities when you have a specific name in mind.
  • page: Specifies the page number of results to return.
  • page_size: Determines the number of results per page (1 - 1000, default: 200) - requires a valid API key.

Use Cases

  • Geographical Filtering: Job search platforms can integrate the Job Cities endpoint to allow users to filter job listings based on specific cities of interest.
  • Localization: Businesses can use city-specific job data to localize their hiring efforts, targeting candidates in specific geographical regions.
  • Market Analysis: Researchers and analysts can utilize city-level job data to perform market analysis, identifying employment trends and regional job market dynamics.

Notes

  • Replace YOUR_API_KEY with your actual jobdata API key in the authorization header.
  • When using filter parameters, it's important to ensure that the values provided match the expected format and type. For instance, the country_code should be in the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 format, and pagination parameters like page and page_size should be integers.
