Tuesday, June 20, marked the official release of the Google jobs search engine, which the Internet giant company first presented a few months ago. This will work as a new option available on the existing search engine and will require no updates or installations.
Google’s new feature should help its users seamlessly find and compare available workplace offers on all of the major online job boards. The jobs search engine is collaborating with LinkedIn, CareerBuilder, WayUp, and DirectEmployers, among others.
Google’s New Jobs Search Engine Should Offer a Comprehensive, Non-Duplicate List of Positions
Google stated that its newest feature is not trying to replace but rather work alongside online job boards. Still, it will also be including job listings detected on a company’s website. Reportedly, the purpose of this new feature is to make it easier for job seekers to find a position without having to access multiple sites and getting stuck among duplicates.
The new jobs search engine is currently available for the English mobile and desktop variants. Users interested in giving it a go will simply have to type “jobs near…” or “creative workplaces” or whatever interests them.
The search results page will then feature a new job search widget, presenting relevant workplace variants. Upon accessing the widget, users will also be able to refine their search by making it more specific. For example, they can include “full-time” or “part-time” to their query.
Upon clicking on an offer, the user will receive more information about its requirements and other such details. This will also show the company’s Indeed or Glassdoor ratings.
The jobs search engine can filter results according to industry, employer, location, and posting date. Users can also turn on notifications which will trigger an alert when a job corresponding to their query gets posted.
Upon deciding upon a position, Google will then redirect to an online job site so as to begin the actual application process. The company will not get involved in this process nor its results.
