Durham, N.C., June 6, 2014 – OptimalResume today announced major new enhancements to the OptimalInterview™ API, including new O*NET and company filters and the addition of more than 5300 pre-recorded interview questions and coaching videos. The company also released two additional APIs, the OptimalOccupations™ API and the OptimalUSCompanies™ API, to enable organizations and developers to create interview applications that include up-to-date occupation and company data.
"We think O*NET provides a fantastic framework to guide the development of our interview product," said David McNasby, CEO of OptimalResume. “The O*NET-SOC taxonomy not only provides a clean structure for us to grow our application datasets, it also helps us prioritize data acquisition efforts and focus on in-demand occupations. Adjacent organizations who rely on O*NET as a key career or educational resource can now easily plug in our proprietary interview content."
O*NET has in-depth information on more than 974 occupations and is considered the nation’s primary source of occupational information. Developers can now use any of the standard filters available on O*NET Online, including occupation title, O*NET-SOC code, career cluster, industry, job zone, bright outlook, green economy sector, job family, and STEM discipline to retrieve pre-recorded interview questions and coaching from the OptimalInterview™ API for their candidate screening or interview practice applications.
"We're not only focused on depth and quality of our interview content, but on the presentation quality as well," McNasby said. "All pre-recorded interview content available through the API is now HD 1080 P quality."
The OptimalOccupations™ API is formulated from O*NET data makes it easy for developers to access information contained in the O*NET 18.1 production database from OptimalResume's developer site. The OptimalUSCompanies™ API allows developers to get top-level company data on more than 17 million U.S companies, including company name, address, location, industry, SIC code, and more.
"We're focused on adding functionality that will help our partners improve results," McNasby said. "Combining these datasets together with our proprietary interview content will certainly help our partners achieve their strategic goals."
