Displaying Posted Jobs via JSON Jobs API

Once your careers page is up and running, users can easily post jobs to that page as well as multiple social networks, job aggregators and subscription sites like Monster and CareerBuilder. Furthermore, Avionte will insure you are leveraging the best services for your jobs by tracking where your applicants come from. This visibility will save you money on job ad spend while streamlining the hiring process and decreasing the time it takes to fill your open positions.

The JSON Jobs feed allows a web developer to pull as much or as little data from the feed as desired to create a highly customized careers page that is uniquely your own. Think of this as a replacement for viewing posted jobs and job descriptions in an iFrame. Next, the developer can utilize the Web Apply API to design and code every aspect of the apply page to your exact specifications. It requires more development and does not include all the web applicant workflow options, but it does provide the greatest flexibility and customization for the design of your apply page.

Key Takeaways

  • Avionté's careers page feature allows easy posting of jobs to various platforms, tracking applicant sources for cost-effective hiring processes and improved efficiency in filling open positions.

  • The JSON Jobs feed and Web Apply API offer developers the flexibility to create highly customized careers pages, allowing for tailored job listings and application processes.

  • The provided examples and endpoints demonstrate how to use Avionté's JSON feed to retrieve job data, including essential details and application links, enabling seamless integration with customized careers pages.

Locate API Key

The JSON Jobs endpoint is located at http://www.myavionte.com/staff/jsonjobsv3.aspx

Your API key can be found by going to Account & Settings (your avatar) > Utilities > Careers Page Editor (Job Board Editor).  Your API key is used to identify your build to Avionté and is used by adding it to the end of your JSON Job Feed URL, like this:

  1. Click on Account & Settings
  2. Click on Utilities
  3. Click on the Career Page Editor tile

    Account Settings - Utilities - Career Page Editor.gif
  4. Copy the API key from the Web Apply API Key field

 

Setup

Each build in Avionté comes with a JSON API endpoint (also referred to as a “feed”) and an API key.  The API key is used to identify your build to Avionté.   The JSON endpoint is a URL that will return data in JSON format for your Company’s posted jobs that a web developer can then use to set up a custom careers page.  

We pass most of the details about each of your posted jobs in the JSON feed, including:

  • Division
  • Department
  • Location
  • Job Create Date
  • Job Country
  • Job City
  • Job State
  • Job Description in both HTML and TEXT
  • Board Name
  • Region
  • Office
  • Pay
  • Owner
  • Job Type
  • Job IDs
  • Title
  • Category
  • Various links to the job and apply process. 
    • As set up in the Careers Page Editor (job board editor)

Since all of this info is always in the JSON feed, your web developer can pull as much or as little data from the feed as is needed to create a highly customized Careers Page that is uniquely your own.

Examples

Note: The links used in the example will not work as it's just an example.

This location will retrieve data for all Posted Jobs

https://myavionte.com/staff/jsonjobsv3.aspx?ID=YOURAPIKEY&proc=getalljobs


This location will retrieve data for a single job as designated in the “PostId20” parameter

https://myavionte.com/corp/jsonjobsv3.aspx?ID=YOURAPIKEY&proc=getsinglejob&postid=POSTID20

 

Example of how to use the JSON feed is below

$(document).ready(function () {
	var rssId = "YOUR_RSS_ID_GOES_HERE";
	var referralLocation = "YOUR_WEBSITE_URL_GOES_HERE";
	var buildId = "YOUR_BUILD_ID_GOES_HERE";
    $.ajax({
        type: 'GET',
        url: "http://www.myavionte.com/staff/jsonjobsv3.aspx?ID=" + rssId + "&refloc=" + referralLocation + "&proc=getalljobs",
        contentType: "application/json",
        dataType: 'jsonp',
        jsonpCallback: buildId,
        success: CompasJsonSuccessResult,
        error: CompasJsonErrorResult
    });
	
	function CompasJsonSuccessResult(json) {
		
		// Open up the browser developer tools and view the console window to see the results 
		// - Please remove before releasing to a production environment!
		console.log(json);
		alert("Success");
		
		// Example of adding all available Job Names to a list and appending them to body
		// - This will generate <ul class="my-new-list"><li id="0">Job Name 1</li><li id="1">Job Name 2</li>...<li id="N">Job Name N</li></ul>
		var items = [];
		$.each(json, function (key, val) {
			items.push('<li id="' + key + '">' + val.Name + '</li>');
		});
		$('<ul/>', {
			'class': 'my-new-li0st',
			html: items.join('')
		}).appendTo('body');
	}
	
	function CompasJsonErrorResult(e) {
		
		// Please remove before releasing to a production environment!
		alert("Error");
		console.log(e.message);
	}
});

"Apply2Link": "https://
myWebsite.com/careers/?postid=ZAfS7GXWOdU&direct=1" "BoardName": "Main Job Board" }


When a call is made to the Avionté JSON endpoint, each job item will include URLs for that job’s Description & Apply page:

  • The Link property is the URL for the Description
  • The Apply2Link property is the URL for the Apply Page


We require using these URLs in a programmatically created or “dynamic” Iframe.  This will allow the applicant to complete the apply process for the job they have selected.  See the article for implementing the Dynamically Created iFrame.
