Google’s new tool is changing the game for job seekers
Starting today Google is launching Google for Jobs, which will scan hundreds of sites, get rid of duplicates, and pull together job ads that are relevant for you.
What this means for you
Job hunting used to be a case of trawling through dozens of sites, like Monster and Glassdoor, professional networks like LinkedIn, sector-specific job networks (like Gorkana for media-types) and individual company careers pages. But no longer, just Google Search for “entry level jobs in DC” and voilà!
Less time hunting, more time applying as every job is only a Google Search away.
Google says job listings will only pop up for searches with “clear intent”, basically you have to know quite specifically what you’re looking for. If you’re just browsing, best stick to LinkedIn.
“We want to better connect employers and job seekers… to use our products to help people find work… no matter who you are, or what opportunity you’re looking for,” Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google at Google I/O in May 2017.
