USA.jobs First Online Job Search Tool To Implement White House And Google's Job Posting Schema





DirectEmployers Association joins US Department of Labor and Google in making jobs easier to find for Internet users.

INDIANAPOLIS, Dec. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- DirectEmployers announces that USA.jobs is the first online job search tool to support a new standard that makes it possible for search engines like Google  to categorize and list online job listings. The Schema.org Job Listing standard enables search engines to categorize jobs by location, job title, education, and veteran's preference. The new standard was announced on November 3, 2011 by Schema.org and the US Department of Labor.  USA.jobs has supported the new listing standards since November 16.

Schema.org is a standards body created by Google (NASDAQ:GOOG), Bing (NASDAQ:MSFT), Yahoo (NASDAQ:YHOO) and Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX) to promote new standards for making web content easier for search engines and web browsers to categorize and present content. Standards created by Schema.org include formats in wide use in news publication, blogging and online advertising.

According to Rick Wehrle, VP Product Development at DirectEmployers, "Historically, search engines like Google have struggled with job listings because there was no easy way to figure out the title of the job, who was listing it and where the position was. The new Schema.org standard takes all the guesswork out of listing jobs in search results. The result is that eventually, finding a job will be as easy as using your favorite search engine."  

USA.jobs is an online job search tool that features job listings from members of DirectEmployers Association. Unlike many other job search platforms, all jobs listed on USA.jobs are directly linked with the employer, making it easy for job seekers to connect directly with potential employers. USA.jobs is the first job search site to deliver full support for the new Schema.org Job Listing standards. Job search sites Monster.com, Indeed and SimplyHired have committed to supporting the new standard in the future but have not delivered full support to date.
