Is there going to be an API for access to the careers site? I could understand that it would be different to the rest of the Stack Exchange APIs, but I could see that it could be useful for use cases such as:

  • Integrating with an HR solution
  • Allowing developers to apply additional search options for a specialised client.

There does seem to be a precedent, with JobServe setting up JobG8 to act as a market exchange for jobs via their API.

No, we are not planning on providing a public API for Careers.

    That's a shame, but I guess the situation may change over time. Commented Dec 10, 2011 at 20:45
  • Does anyone know if there's another jobs site that does provide an API? So I can keep my canonical employment information there? Commented Apr 6, 2012 at 12:08

  • I would have used Stack Careers for maintaining canonical information in one place, but apparently LinkedIn API is the next best choice.
