Google for Jobs finds postings all across the web
What do you do whenever you need anything? I don’t know about you, but I search on online. With unemployment continuing to be an issue in America, Google is stepping up to the stage and making a tool that will help employers and people connect. It’s called Google for Jobs.
What is this all about? Should job-seeking sites be worried? The concept is rather interesting. Instead of showing its very own job postings, Google for Jobs looks within sites like Facebook, Linkedin, Monster, CareerBuilder and others. This means Google is working with others to curate a list of available employment; it’s not exactly competing, but rather helping (at least for now).
This is meant to be a service for everyone. There will be plenty of jobs ranging from entry-level to highly specialized positions. Artificial intelligence and machine learning will sort everything into categories and filters, which users can manage to get their curated job listings. All of this will be presented in a dedicated UI with filters, tools and even notifications.
There is no specific launch date for Google for Jobs, but it is being released in the next “few weeks”. For more Google I/O 2017 content, follow our dedicated page. There is plenty to look at!
