ICIMS Partners with Google to Improve Job Searching

Adjust Comment Print

Google for Jobs will further let job seekers filter job openings based on category, date posted, and full-time or part-time employment, and other options. At I/O, we announced Google for Jobs, a company-wide initiative focused on helping both job seekers and employers, through deep collaboration with the job matching industry.

The key word, of course, is "jobs", and Zakrasek in the blog post recommended that a person looking for a position nearby should search "jobs near me".

Whether you're a student looking for a part-time job, an electrician seeking work closer to home, or a teacher moving to another state to be close to family, finding a job can be hard.

CEO Sundar Pichai announced the plan earlier this year at Google's I/O developer conference.

Google for Jobs combs through major job sites and local companies depending on your criteria.

Ahead of launch, Google worked with job board tech provider Madgex to ensure it was capturing jobs from big brands such as The Washington Post. This is yet another example of artificial intelligence finding its way into our daily lives, and it shows why technology companies are putting so much time and energy into machine learning and AI advancements. It all happens in the search page, so it's quick and easy - no more trawling through Facebook, classifieds, LinkedIn, and a bunch of job boards. Alternatively, many job seekers say they can't find a job they're looking for and the ones they do find just aren't the right fit for them. From there, the Google for Jobs widget will appear with a collection of listings and plenty of filters. Search results will also include companies with job listings on their homepage.

Google for Jobs uses one search engine to yield results from a multitude of different platforms, saving users from the monotony of searching the same keywords across different job sites. Anything beyond that is not in Google's wheelhouse, he added. The feature is young, but as Google for Jobs gets populated with more listings over time, there won't be much of a reason not to at least start your job search with it.
