Bringing Companies and Jobs APIs to the Professional Web
May 26, 2011
Today we are excited to announce new platform capabilities that will enable app developers to bring even more LinkedIn insights to our members, through their apps.
Rich new Company and Jobs APIs
Today, we’re launching a set of powerful APIs to access the rich information about Companies and Jobs on LinkedIn. This will help developers bring company content and job opportunities to our members, wherever they want to see them.
LinkedIn’s company pages contain rich profile and product data for more than 2 million small and large businesses. Imagine an email application allowing you to lookup the company that the sender works for, with a rich display of company information, further linking to people who you know at that company. Think of an innovative mobile app that enables you to search across company profiles by industry, location, size, and more. Our new Company APIs give developers the ability to:
- Retrieve detailed Company content
- Search across companies with rich facets
- Get Products and Recommendations for any Company
- Follow Companies on LinkedIn
- Get Personalized Suggestions for Companies to Follow
Jobs on LinkedIn provide opportunities for professionals to take a step on their career ladder. The new Jobs APIs enable LinkedIn Job postings to reach desktop apps, websites, and career pages. Now every company’s career site can feature their LinkedIn jobs and enable users to search by location, job function, industry, and most importantly access their relationship to the company employees and hiring manager through our professional graph. Our new Jobs APIs give developers the ability to:
- Retrieve detailed Job content
- Search across LinkedIn’s Jobs with rich facets
- Bookmark Jobs to a user’s LinkedIn account
- Get Personalized Suggestions for Jobs
Stay tuned — we have more exciting things planned this summer. Please don’t be shy to tell us what you think — either by commenting or participating in the forums at developer.linkedin.com.
