Companies should mark up their distant job postings with structured information to ensure that them to be labeled appropriately in search outcomes.
Google signifies that the next circumstances have to be met to ensure that a job posting to be thought of distant:
- The job posting have to be for a completely distant place and have the jobLocationType area set to ‘TELECOMMUTE.’
- Jobs that enable partial work-from-home or produce other negotiable preparations should not thought of absolutely distant.
The next suggestions must be thought of when marking up a distant job posting with structured information:
- Google recommends specifying a minimal of 1 nation from which candidates are eligible to work with applicantLocationRequirements.
- Extra applicant location eligibility standards (corresponding to qualifying states) will be specified as nicely.
- If the posting shouldn’t be marked up with applicantLocationRequirements then Google will assume the job is offered 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 count on there will probably be one other announcement when the function does launch. Within the meantime, Google is giving companies a possibility to organize early.
