Data Standard for Jobs

For the JDX to be successful, we must have a data standard that represents and reflects the way we approach hiring today.

Our proposal is the JDX JobSchema+, a standardized way of organizing structured data on the web for jobs. We will pilot test the JDX JobSchema+ through the JDX prototype in the fall. 

The JDX JobSchema+ extends and improves upon a widely-deployed schema in the employment context, the JobPosting Schema. On an ongoing basis, the progress of the JDX JobSchema+ pilot will be shared with the W3C Talent Marketplace Signaling (Talent Signal) Community Group for its consideration and feedback.
