Google's Job Search Engine Improved With New Tools

Google Search now shows estimated salary ranges for online job listings

First and foremost, Google's job search platform is adding the ability to see how much you could potentially make from the job you're viewing. Google search will now display salary information based on the specified position with the help of job titles, location of the job and the employer's name.

Google confirmed at Google I/O yesterday that this will indeed rollout in the upcoming weeks. Between this and the other additions, it's evident that Google wants to be a central destination for job search help.

Forum discussion at Twitter.

For starters, the broader job search functionality was only available on the desktop and through mobile phones before, but now it's available on tablets too.

Google Confirms They Are Launching A Jobs Search Feature - Search Engine Roundtable

For numerous jobs listed in the results Google also provides reviews and ratings of the employers sourced from what Google has described as trusted sites.

Nick Zakrasek, product manager at Google said the new feature benefits job seekers as well as sites that compile estimated salary information. Users just need to click the "Location" filter and select from a range of distances from 2 to 200 miles away, or "anywhere". When a job is listed on multiple sites, Google will give you links to all of them so you can apply from the site of your choice. "Then that job will appear in your "Saved jobs" tabs on Google, which is accessible across any of your devices".

Another important feature: job seekers looking to avoid existentially crushing commutes can now narrow their potential options to particular cities or a particular distance from your home using the updated location filter tool. You can also post your job listing on a list of sites (like LinkedIn, ZipRecruiter, and Glassdoor, among others) already integrated with Google's job searching service to avoid the hassle of integration yourself. Fast forward five months, the company is now doubling down on its efforts to make Google Search a destination in its own right for those seeking work. If a user searches for jobs within a specific area or field, a special section would show applicable job openings at the top of the results.
