This response lists all occupations grouped into the requested Job Zone. Instead of a Job Zone number, developers may pass the value all to retrieve occupations in any zone. The job_zone element indicates each result's Job Zone.

By default, returned occupations are sorted by title. You can change this by passing the optional sort parameter:

  • name - sort by occupation title (default)
  • code - sort by O*NET-SOC code
  • zone - sort by Job Zone (when listing all zones)

The result list is paged, returning 20 occupations at a time by default. To navigate the full set of results, use the link rel="next" and link rel="prev" elements, or provide start and end parameters to jump directly to the desired results.
