Google has announced that they are rolling out a job search feature called “Google for Jobs”. It will be using its powerful search engine to help people find jobs, and make it easier for companies to find talented employees. It will include a feature in search that collects millions of job opportunities from the web and organizes them to make them easier for job hunters to find. Job seekers will be able to view multiple listings by several different categories, such as wages, part-time or full-time, location, experience needed, and how recent the job was posted. Users will also be able to see what public transportation is accessible from their location to the job site.
Google is trying to boost American jobs after President Donald Trump called to put America first. This aggressive push will not only help job-seekers find work, but also help Google attract even more employment-related advertising.
“Google for Jobs has the potential to radically improve discovery of the millions of jobs on LinkedIn” – Dan Shapero (vice president of careers and talent at LinkedIn).
It may seem that this new update will create a competition between Google and existing job boards, but according to Sundar Pichai, Google has worked with these job boards to create the service.
“The challenge of connecting job seekers to better information on job availability is like many search challenges we’ve solved in the past.” – Sundar Pichai (Google CEO).
Google’s machine learning technology will be able to deliver more personalized results to job seekers, making it easier and faster to find open job opportunities.
The feature is said to be rolled out within the next few weeks. Check back for more info soon!
