HOW TO FIND YOUR NEXT JOB ON GOOGLE

Most people have tried out Google to search for employment and are familiar with the regular web results. There are usually a lot of job site listings (Indeed, ZipRecruiter, LinkedIn, etc.) and a few pages to businesses listing their employment opportunities. Sometimes the organic results will show details on the job, but most times users will have to go to the page and find the details they want. Doing this over tens or hundreds of jobs can be a huge time sink.

Whether you have used online searches to find employment before or this is your first go at it there may be some new features in Google that can make job-hunting an easier process. Over the past 3 years, Google has implemented new ways to show jobs in search results and better tools for job hunters to find the right fits for them.

Recently Google created a new platform to make it easier for recruiters to enter abundant details of their job listings. For job searchers, this gives them a user-friendly section with jobs lists by the keywords enter and the proximity to the searcher.

JOB FILTERS IN GOOGLE SEARCH


When you pull up a Google search results page for “Jobs”, “[specific title] Jobs”, “Jobs Near Me”, etc the top area of the page will be the job results area.

And from here you can narrow your search further with too many filters to name from the industry, title, distance to you, etc. You don’t have to know exactly what job you are looking for to find it, Google gives you the tools to explore all your options that fit your employment needs.

Each result will tell you where the job is listed, whether from the business site or a recruiter site. This can be helpful as you find which recruiter sites work for you and which ones don’t, saving you time that would be wasted visiting numerous listings on difficult-to-use sites.
 

THE JOB DETAILS IN GOOGLE


You no longer have to rely on the slow loading times of job listing sites to see the details you need. Once you click on one of the jobs you get to see all of the details that the employer listed. Some job listings will even have multiple sites on which you can apply for the job, so pick the easiest for you.

IMPORTANT JOB DATA


Scrolling down the job listing there is even helpful data to tell you how the job you are viewing compares to others. Reviews on the company come from sites like Glassdoor that tell you how employees feel about working for that employer, and there is data about average salaries for similar positions.

SAVED JOBS AND JOB ALERTS ON GOOGLE


As you are searching for a job on Google you may find jobs that are a maybe rather than a resounding yes, but you still might be interested in the future. In these cases, you have the option to save jobs which will put them into a whole list that you can quickly find again. Another important option is to create custom alerts for specific searches. Creating an alert will trigger an email to be sent to you whenever a new job with your specifications is uploaded. New jobs enter the Google list almost immediately after an employer makes a listing on their sites or others.

SO HOW CAN GOOGLE HELP ME FIND A NEW JOB?


Google gives you a job listing section with metrics that help you filter the jobs you see. And any job you view comes complete with details on the job right on the Google platform. And you get helpful tools like saving jobs for later or job alerts sent right to you from Google.
