This week, tech giant Google announced that it will be breaking into the recruitment scene with the launch of Google for Jobs. The service is aimed at helping candidates find better opportunities across a variety of job search platforms.
Here is what we know so far:
- Google will use their technology to help identify terms job seekers enter into job search inquiries, and help match relevant job openings based on those terms.
- Google will use their location functions to help pinpoint jobs that are close to where a job seeker lives and help users identify how far away certain opportunities are when considering open positions.
- Users will be able to further their search inquiries by applying filters to their job search, which include type of industry, the date of a particular job posting and the type of position (part-time, full-time, etc).
- Google will partner with job search companies like LinkedIn, Glassdoor, CareerBuilder, Monster and ZipRecruiter to hep aggregate job opportunities from across the web.
- Google for Jobs is expected to roll out over “the next several weeks,” according to TechCrunch.
