Google AI Job

The population has been increasing at an alarming rate. But, unfortunately, the number of jobs are not increasing at the same rate. We all know that finding a job can be a tedious process. Google has now decided to help the people in finding the perfect job for them.

Google has launched the new job search feature on the search result page. It lets you search for the job across all the major online job boards like Monster, WayUp, LinkedIn, CarrerBuilder and many more. Google will also include the job listing that it finds on the company’s homepage.

Google idea is to provide a common platform where all the job seekers can search for the appropriate job. This will save a lot of time and resource for job seekers as earlier they have to go to multiple sites for searching jobs.

Job seekers just need to type “jobs near me” and the search result will display all the jobs and then you can easily browse through those. You can also refine your search by location, industry, employers and many more, which will help you to narrow down the job that suits you. You can also turn on the alert button to get the instant notification when any new job related to your interest is posted.

Let’s look at how the entire process works behind the scene. Google first removed all the duplicates job posting on the multiple sites. Then, Google uses its machine learning algorithm to sift through and categorize each job. Once you find the right job for you, Google will redirect you to the job site where you can fill the application. If any particular job appears on multiple sites then Google will redirect you to the most relevant site (which it considers best according to the algorithm that is used to rank the websites).

Once you are redirected to the job listing website, Google’s job is over. It then leaves you to fill the job with appropriate details. Google also made one thing very clear that it is no mood to fight with the job listing companies. Google will only show the job as the search result (for this moment. But you never know what happens in future!!!)
