Google for Jobs was announced at I/O this year, and despite having a not-so-great-name, the idea behind it is really cool. We already use Google to search for just about everything, so why not take it a step further and use it to find job results? Not just sites where you can apply for jobs, but the results themselves.
Whenever you search for “jobs near me” or something more specific, like “retail jobs,” Google will list off relevant results based on the filters you applied. The listings will show employer ratings and reviews, the commute time for you personally, plus the basic stuff like a description of the job and where you can apply.
You can also set up alerts so you’ll be notified of new listings that would interest you, and Google is working with partners to try and get this integrated in as many places as possible.
The feature is live today in English on desktop and mobile, so if you’ve been putting off some job applications, now’s a great time to get started.
