How to convert the odata field value from html format to JSON format?


Hi all,

I use the following successfactor's odata for one of my app:

" "

The 'jobDescription' field of this odata is in HTML format.

<p> The Account Manager is a sales professional with a history of over-performance in quota attainment, winning new business and developing existing accounts
.<br /> <br /> <b>Responsibilities</b><br /> The successful candidates will possess the following qualifications:</p> <ul> <li> 8-10 year background of 
successful sales experience to Fortune 2000 accounts</li> <li> Must have a history of exceeding annual sales quotas for last 3-5 consecutive years.
</li> <li> Ability to manage major account sales cycles to global Fortune 2000 organizations</li> <li> Will have key contacts in the software industry.
</li> <li> Excellent written/verbal communication skills to interact with senior level corporate management.</li> <li> Operates with a sense of urgency 
and has a positive, winning attitude.</li> <li> Proven ability to prospect and manage a designated territory to maximize revenue growth.</li> </ul>

Now, I need to convert that HTML format into json object to use it in my app.I tried the following code.

var jdescs=oData.results[0].jobDescription;

var Odata=jdescs.JSON();


But it's showing me " Uncaught TypeError: jdescs.JSON is not a function".

Can someone help me with this.
