With Civic Job Posting plugin you may improve the visibility of job posts published in your WordPress installation by automatically adding structured metadata in your job posting webpages.
These structured metadata make your job related pages eligible to appear using a special user experience in Google Search results.

The plugin provides you with the ability to create your own job postings and to enable (if you need so) Google indexing from the corresponding ‘Civic Job Posting’ settings page.
By installing the plugin the job posting metadata are always added in your job posting web pages, thus the related pages will be always indexed by Google as jobs irrespective of the selected option for google indexing.

Before enabling Google indexing from the plugin settings page you will need to create a service account with Google (please read more here) and fill in the corresponding information in the fields exposed by the Civic Job Posting plugin settings page. Alternatively you may import the JSON file provided by Google and this will be automatically parsed to fill the corresponding fields.

Once Google indexing is enabled and Google Job Posting API is properly authorised to index information from your website you may start using this functionality.
Once a Job Posting post is created/edited/deleted the corresponding HTTP request is fired towards the Google Job Posting API requesting a reindex of your job post.
Google robots will almost instantly try to index your job posting webpage. Thus you should ensure that Googlebot can crawl your job posting web pages (not protected by a robots.txt file or robots meta tag) and that your webserver is properly configured to allow frequent crawls.

In order to make Job Posting web pages match your website branding you may apply your own CSS rules and/or modify the corresponding templates.
Adapting the templates for archive, category and single job, is as simple as copying the corresponding files and ‘cjp-includes’ located in ‘civic-job-posting/public/partials’ plugin folder, to your theme root folder. You may then proceed with any modification accordingly.
