JobPosting JSON-LD data jumped by 500% over last two years

Of relevance largely to the VC-EDU and HR community, but others in the
CCG might be interested...

There is new research based on the CommonCrawl dataset showing that
the amount of JobPosting data, published by websites as JSON-LD and
crawled by Google and the other search engines to help people find
jobs, jumped by 500% over the last two years (9K domains in the sample
set to over 50K domains, of 12M total domains in the sample set). See
page 2 for the graphs:

The JobPosting type can be found here:

This feels relevant to Open Badges, Learning and Employment Records,
and work that some of you are doing at 1EdTech and VC-EDU. You could
view this news as the demand-side (hiring) for VC-EDU credentials
starting to take off, and the supply side (education and workforce
skills training) might want to try to figure out what's going on here.

Just sharing an interesting data point...
