Job post data from Kenya

Leveraging the jobdata API to backfill your job board with job listings in Kenya.

As a job board owner, one of the challenges you might face is keeping your platform populated with fresh and relevant job listings, especially if you're targeting a specific region or country. The solution? Our jobdata API.

Let's delve into the enormous potential of tapping into our vast database, focusing on the job market in Kenya.

Why Filter by Country?

Before we dive into the how-to, it's essential to understand why filtering job listings by country is advantageous:

  • Relevance: It ensures that the job listings displayed are pertinent to users in a specific region, providing a tailored experience.
  • Localization: Job seekers often search for positions within their country of residence or a country they're interested in relocating to. Displaying country-specific listings simplifies their search.
  • Improved Engagement: By providing localized content, you're likely to witness higher engagement rates, with users spending more time browsing through the job listings.
  • Better Conversion: Tailored job listings mean users find what they're looking for more quickly, leading to higher application rates.

To fetch job listings specific to Kenya, you'd want to utilize the /api/jobcountries/ endpoint to get the country code for Kenya, followed by the /api/jobs/ endpoint to retrieve the listings. See our docs for more details on these endpoints.

Step 1: Fetch the country code for Kenya.


Step 2: Use the obtained country code to fetch job listings for Kenya.
