A career website should be SEO-optimized because it increases the visibility and accessibility of the website to potential job seekers. This can lead to more traffic to the website and more job applications. Additionally, a higher search engine ranking can increase the credibility and perceived quality of the website and the company.

- Mark up important content: Mark up important content such as job listings, company information, and reviews to make it more discoverable by search engines.
- Use structured data testing tools: Use structured data testing tools such as Google’s Structured Data Testing Tool or the structured data validator from Yandex to check for errors and validate your markup.
- Use Rich Results: Use Rich Results such as Rich Snippets, Rich Cards, and Carousels to make your website more visually appealing and interactive in SERPs
- Monitor and update: Monitor your website’s performance using tools like Google Search Console and update your schema markup as needed.
- Keep your schema up-to-date: Stay up-to-date with the latest changes in schema.org vocabulary, especially new types and properties that are relevant to your website.
