Google is the go-to for over 5.6 billion searches every day, and job searches are no exception. When looking for a new job, 69% of active candidates start their search on Google. In the past, Google ranked search results that linked job-seekers to multiple sites across the internet to view the listings. Recently, however, Google launched a virtual job board that enables candidates to see a list of relevant postings and the details directly in the search results; an innovative design that creates an abundance of benefits for both employers and candidates.
If you’re looking for ways to improve your candidate search strategy, take a look at how using Google for Jobs in conjunction with Native Apply can help.
What is Google for Jobs?
Google for Jobs is an intuitive job search platform that enables active candidates to find jobs using the Google search bar. When open positions are posted to a company website or job search platforms like Indeed, Career Builder, or Monster, they are picked up by Google and appear in relevant searches.
Google for Jobs Simplifies the Job Search
Google leverages intuitive AI technology to pair candidates with ideal job openings. To use the platform, candidates enter search criteria into Google’s home page. From there, Google analyzes the data to provide a plethora of relevant openings. To simplify the search, Google also provides multiple filter options including employer, title, location, and date posted.
For recruiters and employers, Google for Jobs is a simple way to attract an abundance of qualified candidates. Because Google for Jobs sources postings from multiple platforms, candidates see all of the jobs they are qualified for instead of a select few.
