If you’re hunting for a new job, Google just debuted a new AI tool that could aid your search.
At this year’s Google I/O, the company introduced a new initiative called Google for Jobs. This effort is aimed to help both employers and job seekers by more intelligently connecting the two. This new job search functionality, built into Google itself, is the first step.
If you search “jobs near me,” “retail jobs,” or other phrases, Google will pull up relevant listings posted on LinkedIn, Monster, Facebook, Glassdoor, and other job sites. You can then filter jobs by location, industry, date posted, and employer. You may see employer reviews or ratings next to a listing, as well. And if you’re logged into Google, it can also show your estimated commute time to that job.
After you perform a search, you can choose to switch on alerts so you’re notified whenever relevant listings crop up.
It’s important to note that Google is only acting as a smart aggregator here. (That is, employers can’t post jobs directly to Google. They still need to post jobs to CareerBuilder, DirectEmployers, or another site.) However, unlike searching through each of these disparate sites yourself, with Google’s tool, you won’t get duplicate listings for the same job. And if you decide to apply for one, you’ll be quickly redirected to start its application.
Google worked with these third-party job listing sites in the creation of this tool. To help it stretch even further though, Google also published its open documentation. This will allow other companies, apps, and websites to share their listings with Google, too, making it more complete and robust.
For now, this job search tool is only available in English, on both web and mobile. You can check it out starting today.
