JobPosting Schema Properties

JobPosting has 49 properties:

  • additionalType An additional type for the item, typically used for adding more specific types from external vocabularies in microdata syntax. This is a relationship between something and a class that the thing is in. In RDFa syntax, it is better to use the native RDFa syntax - the 'typeof' attribute - for multiple types. Schema.org tools may have only weaker understanding of extra types, in particular those defined externally.
  • alternateName An alias for the item.
  • applicantLocationRequirements The location(s) applicants can apply from. This is usually used for telecommuting jobs where the applicant does not need to be in a physical office. Note: This should not be used for citizenship or work visa requirements.
