AI-Powered Google Jobs Search Feature Rolls Out to the SERP
Google actually announced the initiative at Google I/O this year. The search engine states it wants to make the job search process more simple. And, it’s not just confined to the SERP or search engine results page. Google says job seekers can set alerts, as well.
“Searching for a job can take time. And keeping up with new jobs that are posted throughout the day can be impossible. Now, if you step away from your job search, you can pick up right where you left off and stay in the loop on opportunities that interest you. Just turn on alerts for your search to receive an email notification whenever new jobs arrive, keeping you up-to-date and on top of your job hunt.”
The initiative is collaborative, as Google works with several partners, including: LinkedIn, Monster, WayUp, DirectEmployers, CareerBuilder, Glassdoor, and Facebook. The search engine makes this possible by disincluding all duplicate listings, with machine-learning algorithms. Once a job seeker finds an open position interesting, Google sends him or her to the page which starts the actual application process.
However, Google makes it clear it is not seeking to invade the job-matching space. Currently, the company has no plans to allow employers to post openings directly on the SERP.
