Looking for work is stressful, especially when you think about toggling between the various job sites you’ll have to scour for the right gig (not to mention all the attendant resume tweaking) . To help, Google’s updating its recently launched Google for Jobs service, allowing job seekers to glean more information about potential gigs, and help them narrow down their prospective career opportunities without dealing with tab after tab of identical listings.
The job-hunting service is integrated into Google’s search engine, so you can look for gigs in the same seamless way you search for celebrities’ ages, or for terminal diseases based on your symptoms (it’s just a cold). It also attempts to fill in the blanks on a glaring omission in nearly 85% of all job postings, according to Google: an actual salary. Google’s attempting to rectify the error by including either stated or estimated salaries based on both the job title and the reported salary range from sites like Glassdoor, PayScale, and LinkedIn.
Another important feature: job seekers looking to avoid existentially crushing commutes can now narrow their potential options to particular cities or a particular distance from your home using the updated location filter tool.
While job searches often involve visiting multiple job posting sites such as LinkedIn or Monster.com, if Google detects the same job posting in multiple sites, it will let you choose on which site you’d like to apply. A job saving feature is coming “in a couple of weeks” according to Google, and will allow you to save particular job listings and sync them between your devices. Employers looking to add their own job listings to Google’s job searching service can follow the company’s instructions on making job postings available to its search engine. You can also post your job listing on a list of sites (like LinkedIn, ZipRecruiter, and Glassdoor, among others) already integrated with Google’s job searching service to avoid the hassle of integration yourself.
