What exactly does Google want to know?

With every new job opening, you send information to Google. Basically you send a piece of code to Google, which then translates it as Job Post. This piece of code must meet a number of requirements. In the first place, it is important that the information you send matches the text of your vacancy. There are also 10 things Google would like to know. Of these, 6 are mandatory and 4 desirable. 

Required technical-data
  • Date of publication
  • A full description of the vacancy in HTML. Please note: this includes responsibilities, activities and what you offer as an employer.
  • Company name. Do you normally prefer to talk about ‘our client’? Then you are 1-0 behind in Google for Jobs. 
  • The exact location where the candidate will work.
  • A good job title
  • A job application deadline (end date)
Desired technical data
  • Salary. A minimum and a maximum salary can be specified. Do you not give this value? Then Google shows an amount based on comparable vacancies.
  • Type of employment. Is it a full-time position, part-time position, temporary position?

  • Position. A field specifically intended for vacancies where candidates work 100% remotely.

What should my vacancy-text look like?

Via VoorTekst, specialist in texts within labor market communication, we have 5 tips that will help you help to write the vacancy text optimally.

  • Use the correct function name: With the free Google Trends Tool find out the job title that is most commonly used as a search term in Google.
  • Start the job description with a distinctive and attractive intro: The first 5 to 25 lines are important! Describe your Job Value Proposition here: why should the target group choose this vacancy?
  • Hold the reader’s attention.
    Do: Active writing, use of words that suit the target group, use of pull factors and use of motivational motives.
    Dont’s: Itchy words, open doors, cliches and long texts.
  • Use relevant keywords: Be sure to include the job title, location and the word ‘vacancy’. Other relevant words and synonyms contribute to findability.
  • Indicate the salary: Always state the salary in euros and avoid terms such as ‘market in line’ or ‘matching your experience’. Do you omit the salary? Then Google itself shows an amount based on the average of comparable vacancies.
