"job-listing" is clunky, would "vacancy" be a better name?

  • I second the change of name to "Vacancy". - ntoll
    • I disagree, "vacancy" has no context. It could refer to anything - eg "hotel vacancy". - Quint

What about "job-offer"? Reason: People with low english-skills often know "offer" but not "vacancy". On the other hand: Why not easily "job"? With an attribute you can specify if it is a "job-offer" or a "job-application". So human beeings/job-platforms can easily compare "offers" and "applications".

Keep in mind the internationally recognized term in the ATS industry is "requisition". This is also defined in the HRXML specification.

While I believe other non-standard options should be considered, it does not appear as though the hResume specification gave any consideration to HRXML, which does have a large adoption for backend transations regarding HR data (including resumes and requisitions).
