Listing files only from given section

We are wanting to have out content split into 2 sections in the content directory:

  • pages
  • job-openings

The idea here is to that the content in each uses a different template in Netlify. Then in a short code:

{{ $section := "jobs" }}

  {{ range (where .Site.RegularPages.ByTitle "Section" $section ) }}
   <li><a href="{{ .Permalink }}">{{ .Params.title | humanize | title }}</a></li>
  {{ end }}

The issue here is that the resulting display results in no pages. If I change the value of $section to be ‘pages’ then I get output, but not of the directory I am interested in.

Can anyone suggest what I should be doing?

{{ $section := "job-openings" }}
