Talent marketplace signaling and schema.org JobPostings

Hello all.

For some time now the Jobs Data Exchange project [JDX 
<https://www.uschamberfoundation.org/workforce-development/JDX>] has 
been working to help employers signal hiring requirements for in-demand 
jobs and skills to education and workforce partners.

The data model <https://github.com/jobdataexchange/Data-Modeling> behind 
JDX leverages schema.org terms where possible. Through the development 
of this data model, as well as from other input, for example from HR 
Open Standards, we have many ideas for guidance on and improvements to 
the schema.org JobPosting schema. In order to advance those ideas 
through a broader community and feed them back to schema.org, we have 
now created the Talent Marketplace Signaling W3C Community Group 
[TalentSignal <https://www.w3.org/community/talent-signal/>](*).

I hope the TalentSignal group will develop advice on how to use existing 
schema.org terms to describe hiring requirements, suggest clarifications 
for some of the existing definitions, and where this is not sufficient 
make proposals for new terms. (Of course it is up to the schema.org 
steering group whether these proposals are accepted or not.)

Although the group will focus first on Job Postings, it has been created 
with a broader remit in order to avoid having to set up a whole series 
of groups every time we have a new idea for work in this domain.

If you are interested in contributing to or following this work, please 
consider joining the community group 

Best regards, Phil Barker
