For job listings, Google is adding a new structured data markup property that allows applicants to fill directly on the employer’s website. In addition, Google is enforcing a new editorial content standard. This is to make it easier for people to understand the content of job listings and apply for them directly or through alternative channels.
- Employers can now use the new directApply property to indicate whether or not prospective employees can apply for jobs directly on their website.
- This markup isn’t applicable if the job posting requests applicants to upload a resume and then type all of the same material into an application form.
- This markup can be used right away by site owners.
