Hello Antoine,

schema.org JobPosting and related terms (and HROpen Standards) are being 
used by a project of the US Chamber of Commerce Foundation called Job 
Data Exchange 
<https://www.uschamberfoundation.org/workforce-development/JDX>. The aim 
of the project is to facilitate communication about hiring requirements 
to organizations involved in the labour market and between the labour 
market and education, training and learning providers, about such things 
as jobs available, their required skills, and related educational 
outcomes. While it is not a consumer of schema.org JobPosting data in 
the way that a search engine is, JDX is fostering infrastructure so that 
such services can be built more easily and work better. We have a W3C 
Community Group <https://www.w3.org/community/talent-signal/> where we 
are currently discussing schema.org properties for job postings.
