Google unveils new search feature to help people find jobs

Google has now launched AI-powered job search engine, which has been mainly rolled out for English speaking users from the U.S. as of now; and will be shortly introduced globally. The company launched the job search engine at its developer conference in May 2017. Users also have the ability to turn on notifications for a specific search query so they will get an immediate alert when a new job is posted that matches that query. This new feature allows everyone to search for new jobs on practically every major online job board.

Google is partnering with several help-wanted and employer-rating services, including LinkedIn, Monster, WayUp, DirectEmployers, Career Builders, Glassdoor and Facebook. The company said it's also publishing open documentation on the feature for all job providers so that other third-party platforms or employer Web sites can ensure sure that Google discovers their open positions. "Whether you're a young adult looking for your first job, a veteran hoping to leverage your leadership experience in civilian life, or a parent looking for a job with better pay to support a growing family, we hope this new experience on Google will help make the job search simpler and more effective".

Tech giant Google is aiming to make looking for a new job as easy as searching for anything else online.

We will keep you updated as we receive more information on this development.

Ronaldo heads Portugal to 1-0 win over Russia at Confed Cup
New Zealand's superb first-half display rattled Mexico and a tense match boiled over with a mass brawl in the dying stages. At the last minute of additional time, when Portugal thought they had won it, Mexico equalized and the game ended 2-2.


Google will also be presenting a jobs listing for you on your mobile and desktop's chrome browser, aiming to rectify the hassles of browsing through multiple job websites, which often ends up at wasting time at duplicate and irrelevant jobs. This has always been a problem for job hunters since not every user knows which job sites are good and if the jobs posted are even legitimate.

The new feature, now available only in English, uses the same simple language Google searches are known for. You can filter jobs by industry, location, how recently they were posted, full time and part time, and the type of employer.

Its worth noting that Google is not using details about you that it already knows for this process.
