Google has added to the developer documents around job posting structured data a whole new troubleshooting section. This section gives developers access to more tips on how to properly implement this type of schema. Aaron Bradly first noticed this and posted it on Google+, he said:

As per the call-out image, Google has added a section on specifications for job posting (http://bit.ly/2DPO144) to help publishers resolve issues "[if] your job posting isn't appearing in the jobs enriched search results or if you've received a manual action for Spammy Structured Markup in Search Console" - all the highlighted menu items are new.

What Google has provided is obviously very useful for those experiencing problems implementing schema.org/JobPosting. A welcome addition, as a frequent complaint against Google with regard to structured data is that information on errors is absent or too vague - let's hope they bring this level of support to other data types.

The troubleshooting section is broken down into these sections:

Here is Google's disclaimer to all of this:

Important: Google does not guarantee that your structured data will show up in search results, even if your page is marked up correctly according to SDTT. For a list of common reasons why Google may not show your structured data in enriched search results, see the General Structured Data Guidelines.
