Given the recent COVID-19 impact on businesses and employment, Google has seen increased job seeker interest in work-from-home and remote job opportunities. We want to make it easier for job seekers to discover these relevant employment options.
In response to this, we encourage you to annotate all remote jobs by specifying
jobLocationType: "TELECOMMUTE" in any job postings that allow for 100% remote work. Implementing this markup can expose a “work from home” tag next to that job posting, to improve visibility for interested job seekers.
Please note that this feature is available only in the USA and UK at the moment.
Access the documentation linked below for details on how to implement this markup. For additional support, please visit the Webmaster Forum.
If you use Jobboard.io or SmartJobBoard just add “Telecommute” to your job type field.
