The job listing schema looks good to me.  Comparing it with schemas we've used in Needlebase for aggregating job listings, the only addition I'd suggest is a contact email address for the listing.  The URL field inherited from Thing is obviously crucial, as is the generic description field from Thing for cases where the posting intermingles the skills, requirements, responsibilities, etc. as free text.

Cheers,
Justin
