Google to Introduce Job Posting Markup for Remote Jobs

Google will quickly be rolling out the power for firms to spotlight postings for distant jobs in search outcomes.

This will make it simpler for folks to search for jobs the place they will work at home.

The announcement of this new function is being despatched to web site house owners instantly through Google Search Console.

Businesses could have to mark up their distant job postings with structured knowledge so as for them to be labeled appropriately in search outcomes.

Google signifies that the next situations have to be met so as for a job posting to be thought of distant:

  • The job posting have to be for a totally distant place and have the jobLocationType subject set to ‘TELECOMMUTE.’
  • Jobs that permit partial work-from-home or produce other negotiable preparations should not thought of absolutely distant.

The following suggestions ought to be thought of when marking up a distant job posting with structured knowledge:

  • Google recommends specifying a minimal of 1 nation from which candidates are eligible to work with applicantLocationRequirements.
  • Additional applicant location eligibility standards (corresponding to qualifying states) may be specified as nicely.
  • If the posting is just not marked up with applicantLocationRequirements then Google will assume the job is out there to everybody in the identical nation because the jobLocation worth.

Labeling of distant job postings in Google search has not formally rolled out but, however the firm says will probably be launching “soon.”

I anticipate there will probably be one other announcement when the function does launch. In the meantime, Google is giving companies a possibility to put together early.
