We all know job hunting can be very painful. To make your job search simpler Google announced an important update for its job search platform – Google for jobs.
On Wednesday, Google announced in a blog post that it is introducing new features to Google Search Engine for job seekers so that they can directly access the salary information for job postings, improved location settings, job application choices. The search giant also added that in a couple of weeks it will add a feature that lets the job seekers save individual jobs.
“Now, based on feedback from job seekers, we’re introducing some new features to help make the process more efficient. Directly in Search, you can access salary information for job postings, improved location settings, job application choices, and in a couple of weeks, the ability to save individual jobs,” said Nick Zakrasek, product manager for the job search platform, Google, in a blog post.
“We all know the job hunt can be stressful, so Google is here to help. We review every piece of feedback we receive, and we’ll continue to add tools to help make the job search easier for you,” added Zakrasek.
As salary is the first and most important factor in choosing a job and according to Google over 85 percent of the job postings doesn’t show estimated salary, Google is adding this feature to display estimated salary for a particular job. The salary for a job position will depend on job title, location, and employer. Google will use sources such as Glassdoor, PayScale, LinkedIn, Paysa and more to display the salary-related details.
Google has also added a feature which lets the users specify the location of an area for Google to find the matching jobs for your query. Google can search from 2 miles to 200 miles (or anywhere) depending upon the flexibility of the user.
Google has worked with a various leader in the industry to introduce a new experience to the job seekers and help them. According to Google since this year 60%, more employers are showing jobs in the search results. However, this job search feature is limited to US citizens only.
