The service from the U.S. Department of Labor provides authoritative information about occupational descriptions and projected employment demand across the nation's economy. It offers the U.S. government's official taxonomy of job titles and Standard Occupation Classification (SOC) codes. Also available are tools for career investigation and planning, questionnaires to analyze and categorize job duties, and hiring guidelines for employers.
API methods support access to career overview materials grouping job definitions by required skills and experience, personality traits, technologies used, and more. Methods also provide updated employment outlook for occupations and categories. The API gives programmatic access to interest profiler functions that present questions and accept responses to suggestion occupations suited to specific areas of interest.
Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those ten, which included the ParkMe API. ParkMe utilizes heat mapping to help users find empty parking spots in busy cities. For cold/blue heat signatures mean less activity where as red/hot means more activity. Depending on the area, these colors could mean open or taken spots. The ParkMe API simply allows developers to integrate the ParkMe functionality with their applications.
Are you at a career crossroads? Or are you a developer trying to help those who are and those who needs data on the world of work?

The site can be used to download the O*NET database, career exploration tools, job analysis questionnaires, employer guides, and technical reports."The o*net API makes their data available for use in your apps.
