Tech Time – Google for Jobs
How to Use Google’s New Job Search Feature
Google just announced its new “Google for Jobs” search feature that is designed to help match job seekers with employers.
If a job candidate enters a direct job search request on Google, such as “accounting jobs in Asheville”, the search results show a listing of jobs that match your search criteria. The new search feature looks across multiple job posting websites showing you a list of jobs directly within Google’s search results page. This saves you time by not having to go to 3 or 4 different sites to see who has jobs listed. You can also search for employer specific jobs like “jobs at Amazon”. Click on the job title in the search results to see more details about the job posting.
On the detail job listing page you can easily filter through available jobs by Category, Title, Date posted, Type, City, Company type and Employer to help narrow down the list.
At the bottom of the listing page you can click to “Turn on job alerts for this search”. You will receive email notifications when new jobs are posted that match your search criteria.
Jobs listed in the search come from many of the popular job listing sites including LinkedIn, Monster, DirectEmployers, CareerBuilder, Glassdoor, and Facebook.
Employers can list their job posting directly with Google and have the option for prominent search result placement. Companies can display logo, reviews, rating and job details. To get your job listings in the search results, check out the instructions made available by Google. Google also pulls listings from popular job matching sites.
This new job search service was just announced at Google’s IO conference and will continue to be enhanced.
