Hi, PhilThis is great and simple, quick win as you mentioned in the other thread. A few comments/questions:
- Do we need to be even tighter on the expected range? Will we expect or allow negative numbers? Is a value of 0 acceptable or must it be >=1 if the property is used? - Do we need to add to the definition what to do if the actual number is unknown? i.e. "totalJobOpenings: Number of positions open for this job posting. If the number of positions is unclear or not known, do not include this property."
Best regardsAndrew.

Hello all, new topic: total job openings, I am hoping that this is straightforward.
JDX JobSchema+ has a property for when a JobPosting has more than one vacancy/opening, schema.org JobPosting doesn't [1]. This seems significant, it's often worth knowing whether there are 50 new vacancies or just one. So I think we should suggest to schema.org that they add the property :
totalJobOpenings: Number of positions open for this job posting.
expected domain: JobPosting
expected range: Integer [don't use fractions to describe part-time openings; two 50%FTE does not equal one opening!]
