Here is How You Can Add Job Posting Schema To Your WordPress Site With No Coding Experience:
1. Install Rank Math PRO
Although, Rank Math free version can also add free schema to your job posting page. However, we recommend using Rank Math PRO. It will cost you $59 per year, which is pretty cheap. A single subscription will work on as many sites as you own. It is by far the best SEO plugin for WordPress with many other features that will boost your rankings on the search engines. We love the Schema Import option, which lets you import Schema Markup from any website.
Pro Tip: As long as your client’s site is connected to your Google analytics & search console account (that is also connected to Rank Math), you should be able to use all the PRO features on your client’s. In other words, if you have connected Google analytics and search console as the site owner using your Rank Math Gmail ID. Then you can use all the PRO Features on any site you own. If your client is reluctant to make you the owner then you will have to sign up for the Business plan for agencies.
2. Go To Rank Math Dashboard
You will find several features on your schema dashboard. You will have to activate Schema from the Rank Math Dashboard. As shown in the image below:
