CareerBuilder’s Application Programming Interface (the “CareerBuilder API” or “API”) allows you to integrate our database of millions of jobs with your software or website. The API provides methods for basic job searching and retrieval of data for a specific job. These services are free to use and available to anyone. The data returned by our API are subject to change at our discretion at any time.
Please read this page carefully. It contains the terms and conditions (the “API Terms”) governing your access to and use of the API and related Services (as defined below) provided by CareerBuilder, LLC or one of its divisions (collectively, “CareerBuilder,” “we” or “our”). If you do not accept these API Terms or you do not meet or comply with their provisions, you may not use the API. These Terms and Conditions are effective as of August 24, 2012.
Please contact us at any time if you have any questions, to report bugs, or to leave feedback.
These API Terms, together with the CareerBuilder Terms and Conditions located at http://www.careerbuilder.com/JobSeeker/Info/HHTerms.aspx, as they may be amended from time to time by CareerBuilder, form a binding agreement (the "Agreement") between you and CareerBuilder (“API Terms” shall mean both this document and the CareerBuilder Terms and Conditions). In the event of any conflict between the terms in this document and the CareerBuilder Terms and Conditions, this document shall control with respect to your use of the CareerBuilder API. Your access to or use of the API indicates your acceptance of these API Terms. You are agreeing to use the API at your own risk.
You may register for a developer account at http://api.careerbuilder.com/RequestDevKey.aspx. Once you register for a developer account, you will be assigned a developer key that may be used to access the API. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your information, including your developer key. You may not allow others to use your developer key. You are responsible for all uses of your developer key, whether or not authorized by you. If others use your developer key in a manner that violates these API Terms, you risk losing your access to the API. You agree to notify CareerBuilder immediately of any unauthorized use of your developer key.
