As mentioned in this link https://data.usajobs.gov/Rest about the usage of API, I have seen different behaviors.
Here it is :

1) The default response is XML, its not jSON as mentioned in the link.

Request Header
Host: data.usajobs.gov
Within the Request Header, you also need to identify which format you desire. JSON is the default value if not specified:
Content-type: application/json
Content-type: application/xml

2) As mentioned in the link as "The REST API does not require authentication and is open to all consumers.", I do see an Authorization error while trying to invoke a call via a mobile app which is underdevelopment.

3) When I am directly using the link in browser, I am getting the response in XML format like for this call
https://data.usajobs.gov/api/jobs?series=2210
https://data.usajobs.gov/api/jobs?Title=Manager
but when I am invoking this call from MObile ap, its saying Authorization Error.

Kindly let me know,how can I proceed with developing my app using this Services & so many errors.
