Indeed job search API demo

Before starting our tutorial make sure you have your Indeed publisher account. Find the like to create the publisher account.

Here we go. We can start our tweaks for Indeed job search API v2.

Include Jquery Plugin inside header

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-2.1.4.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

HTML Code

Below code will hold the Job search input box, search button, job results and pagination element.

<input class="jobname" id="jobname" type="text" value="" name="jobname">
<input class="location" id="location" type="text" value="" name="location">
<input type="submit" id="searchResult" value="Find Jobs" class="">
<!—Job result element -->
<div id="jobs-data"></div>
<div style="clear:both;"></div>
<!—Pagination element -->
<div id="pagination"></div>

JavaScript Code for finding country

Below code will call one of the IP address api call using AJAX request

var location, country, limit = 10;
$.get("http://ip-api.com/json/", function (response) {
 country = response.country;
}, "jsonp");

“Find more jobs” button click event code below

$( "#searchResult" ).click(function() {
 jobSearch($('#location').val(),$('#jobname').val(),country,0,limit);
});

Pagination link click code below

var resultLinks = $('body').find('#pagination');
resultLinks.on('click', 'li', function (e) {
 var start = ($(this).text() - 1) * limit, end = start + limit;
 jobSearch($('#location').val(),$('#jobname').val(),country,start,end);
});

Below “extractDomain” function will extract current location indeed url for “find more jobs” link

function extractDomain(url) {
 var domain;
 //find & remove protocol (http, ftp, etc.) and get domain
 if (url.indexOf("://") > -1) {
  domain = url.split('/')[2];
 }
 else {
  domain = url.split('/')[0];
 }
 //find & remove port number
 domain = domain.split(':')[0];
 return domain;
};

Below function will render the indeed job data's, find more jobs link and pagination

function jobSearch(location, data, country, start, end) {
 var serachData = data;
 $.ajax({
  cache: false,
  data: $.extend({
  publisher: “API_KEY”,
  v: '2',
  format: 'json',
  q: data,
  l: location,
  radius: 50,
  limit: limit,
  sort: 'date',
  highlight: 1,
  filter: 1,
  latlong: 1,
  co: country.toLowerCase(),
  userip: '',
  useragent: ''
 }, {
  start: start,
  end: end
 }),
 dataType: 'jsonp',
 type: 'GET',
 timeout: 5000,
 url: 'http://api.indeed.com/ads/apisearch'
 })
 .done(function(data) {
  var result = "",
  pagination = "",
  i = 2,
  style, url, paginationLimit = Math.ceil((data.totalResults) / limit);

 $.each(data.results, function(i, item) {
  style = ((i % 2) == 0) ? "articaljoblistinggray" : "articaljoblistingwhite"
  result = result + '<a target="_blank" href="' + item.url + '"><li class="articaljoblisting ' + style + '" style="margin-bottom:3px;">' + item.jobtitle + '<br /><span style="color:black;">' + item.source + ' - ' + item.formattedLocation + '</span></li></a>';
 i++;
  // Get current location indeed url
  url = item.url;
 });

 for (i = 1; i <= paginationLimit; i++) {
  pagination = pagination + '<li>' + i + '</li>';
 }

 $('#jobs-data').html('<ul style="list-style: none;margin: 0;padding:0;">' + result + '</ul>  ;<a style="float: right;" target="_blank" href="http://' + extractDomain(url) + '/jobs?q=' +  serachData + '&l=' + location + '">Find more jobs</a>');
 $('#pagination').html('<ul class="pagination" style="list-style: none;margin: 0;padding:0;">' + pagination + '</ul>');
 });
};

In above function the parameters (country, data, country, start, end) will help to fetch the data from indeed api url. $.each will parse all the data’s and store the data’s in “result” variable. Below code will construct the pagination URL and store the links in “pagination” variable.

for (i = 1; i <= paginationLimit; i++) {
 pagination = pagination + '<li>'+i+'</li>';
}

Below code will print the data’s, find more and pagination link

$('#jobs-data').html('<ul style="list-style: none;margin: 0;padding:0;">'+result+'</ul><a style="float: right;" target="_blank" href="http://'+extractDomain(url)+'/jobs?q='+serachData+'&l='+location+'">Find more jobs</a>');
$('#pagination').html('<ul class="pagination" style="list-style: none;margin: 0;padding:0;">'+pagination+'</ul>');
