Hi,

I totally agree with you, we have the same needs on 
http://www.wiktik.com ( example : 
http://www.wiktik.com/emploi/offres/developpeur-mysql-front-9398 )

I've also made the same kind of proposal to the list about baseSalary, 
see http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-vocabs/2011Nov/0072.html


Thanks,
   Jocelyn Fournier

I know others would like to see included too. (See comments here: http://blog.schema.org/2011/11/schemaorg-support-for-job-postings.html?showComment=1320832569226#c3183089836097067888)

>>> Max Salary

>>> Closing date
> - Jobs are often advertised with a closing date for applications, there is no property for this in the published Schema.
>
>>> Reference
> - Jobs are often advertised with a reference code of some description, usually tied back to the recruiters or employers HR system, it would be useful to include this.
