Salary Currency Parameter Values

The list of currently available salary currencies for the /api/jobs/ endpoint in the Jobdata API is as follows:

  • AUD (Australian Dollar)
  • CAD (Canadian Dollar)
  • CHF (Swiss Franc)
  • EUR (Euro)
  • GBP (British Pound Sterling)
  • SGD (Singapore Dollar)
  • USD (US Dollar)

These currencies provide a broad spectrum for specifying salary ranges in job postings, accommodating the global reach of job listings available through the Jobdata API. Users can specify the salary_currency query parameter to filter job listings based on the desired currency for salary information.

Using the |OR| Operator in Location and Title Queries

The |OR| operator can be used to expand your search criteria on the title and location parameters, allowing you to query for jobs that match any of the specified values. Don't forget to include the "|" (pipe) symbols as in "|OR|" and not "OR" - the latter would be treated as just another title search term (this is different from the "OR" operator for the full-text search in job descriptions).

Examples

To search for jobs in either "New York" or "San Francisco", you would format your query parameter as follows:

location=New+York|OR|San+Francisco

To look for jobs with the title "Software Engineer" or "Product Manager", your query parameter would be:

title=Software+Engineer|OR|Product+Manager

Example Request with Curl

curl -X GET "https://jobdataapi.com/api/jobs/?location=New+York|OR|San+Francisco&title=Software+Engineer|OR|Product+Manager" \
     -H "Authorization: Api-Key YOUR_API_KEY"

Example Request in Python

import requests

url = "https://jobdataapi.com/api/jobs/"
params = {
    "location": "New York|OR|San Francisco",
    "title": "Software Engineer|OR|Product Manager"
}
headers = {
    "Authorization": "Api-Key YOUR_API_KEY"
}

response = requests.get(url, params=params, headers=headers)
print(response.json())

The |OR| operator is a powerful tool that enhances the flexibility and efficiency of your job searches on the Jobdata API, allowing for more comprehensive and tailored search results.
