Google launches google for jobs, its own job search engine
Posted June 26
Google has become the g0-to source for finding almost anything. Have a question about your favorite band? Google it. Need to find the perfect vacation destination? You know where to search. And now, the popular online search engine wants to help users find employment with its own job search feature!
According to a recent Manpower survey, 46 percent of employers have a hard time finding qualified workers. Google for Jobs helps “job seekers and employers, through deep collaboration with the job matching industry,” according to a company blog post.
Think of it as a one-stop shop for job listings. Developers worked to put together a system that pulls in job opportunities from sites such as CareerBuilder, Facebook and LinkedIn. Instead of having to visit each of these sites, one search compiles a customized list for each user.
How Does Google For Jobs Work?
Google makes using its job feature as easy as your everyday search. First, simply type “jobs” into Google.com:
As you can see, the search engine pulls up a job section in its findings. The general search provides an unfiltered listing of available jobs in your immediate area.
Looking for a more specific job field? Focus your results by typing in the type of job you want. Looking for an accountant position? Simply type accounting jobs and voila!
From there, you can narrow your search by how many hours you need (full-time or part-time), commute time, etc. Users can also find reviews on the employers and job descriptions.
Once you click on a position, you’ll find the individual listing from the individual job posting:
Typically, you’ll have a full job description at your fingertips. Then, you can click to get more information or find out how to apply for the job.
Ready to find your next job? Maybe Google will help you find it!
