Need a new job? Today Google introduces a search engine that will include results from nearly every job website.
To connect with refined results from Linked In, Monster, CareerBuilder, and more job search sites, all it takes is a quick Google search of “jobs near me” or “(insert job here) jobs”. The new Google job widget will give you a general list of jobs, which you then filter down based on how hours, locations, and specific skills.
Once you’ve narrowed down what you’re looking for, you can create a personalized setting to receive notifications any time a job pops up with your specifications.
“Every person has a unique set of preferences and it only takes one person to fill this job,” says product manager Nick Zakrasek.
According to Zakrasek, the Google AI won’t use what the data it collects on you from, say, your search history to determine the job listings, only what you type as part of your job search.
The process starts with Google eliminating repeat job listings; then its learning-trained algorithms filter and sort them. If you want to continue the process based on a listing, Google will connect you to the application process for that job. When the job is listed on more than one site, Google will send you to the most detailed site.
At this time, Google won’t be dealing directly with employers but merely collecting the data and connecting searchers to it. Employers will continue to post to job search sites as usual.
One of these job search sites, Monster, has made clear that it believes that the new system will benefit them and other sites like them.
As Monster CTO Conal Thompson said, “Google’s new job search product aligns with our core strategy and will allow candidates to explore jobs from across the web and refine search material to meet their unique needs.”
Finding a job online gets easier all the time.
