Google Job Search Feature Adds Salaries, Location Filter, and More

The Google job search feature, which appears directly on the SERP, now shows salary ranges, includes a location filter and more…

In May,  certain queries returned job search results in what appeared a limited test. Then, in June, Google introduced an AI-powered jobs search feature. Today, it expanded its capabilities to include salary ranges, a location filter, and more.

Searches can now filter jobs by location. The filter sets location ranges from as little as 2 miles away, up to 200 miles away. In the updated version, job seekers can also choose the service through which they’d like to apply. (For instance Monster or CareerBuilder.)

“Once you find a job you’re interested in, we want to make it easy for you to apply. However, jobs are often posted in multiple places on the web, and most job seekers have a preference for where they apply. If you’ve already put in the time to build out your professional presence or profile online (on Monster or CareerBuilder, for example), you might prefer to apply to future jobs on that same site.”

Additionally, the search giant added salary ranges. Google pulls this information from sites like Glassdoor and Payscale.

Product Manager Nick Zakrasek states since its initial release earlier this year, the company has seen over a 60 percent increase of employers placing job openings in search. Zakrasek also explains user feedback drove the company to add more features.

Job seekers will soon also be able to save open listings with a new bookmark button under “Saved jobs” with a single tap. That feature will roll out “in a couple of weeks.”
