UPDATE: On the heels of the release of Google for Jobs, the search engine giant is also getting into the Applicant Tracking System game, with the release of “Hire” an all-new platform geared towards small to mid-sized businesses.
The tech giant announced earlier this year that it will be breaking into the recruitment scene with the launch of Google for Jobs.
According to Google’s blog post on the release, Hire integrates with the rest of Google’s G-Suite system, allowing recruiters to communicate with candidates and schedule interviews using their Google Calendar and Gmail tools. Employers will also be able to track and analyze their talent pipeline with Google Sheet integration.
Hire is available to U.S.-based businesses with under 1,000 employees who are also G-Suite customers, who can use the service for a fee. It was not immediately clear how much the service costs, but Google does allow those looking for more information to sign up for a demo.
Google made its debut in the talent acquisition scene with the release of Google for Jobs in May. Here’s what you need to know:
- Google uses their technology to help identify terms job seekers enter into job search inquiries across a variety of platforms, aggregating the best results across a variety of job boards, including LinkedIn, Glassdoor, CareerBuilder, Monster and ZipRecruiter.
- Google will use their location functions to help pinpoint jobs that are close to where a job seeker lives and help job seekers identify how far away certain opportunities are when considering open positions.
- Job seekers 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 then filters out duplicate job postings, to create a “comprehensive list” of all related jobs according to the search.
- Once a candidate selects a job opening, Google will then help direct a candidate to the site “with the most complete job posting,” so the job seeker can start the application process.
