Google reveals its AI driven job-search aid in US

Many will also show reviews and ratings of the employer alongside the job description. This detailed job information is a new technique on Google's part as the search engine has always shown bare bone links for different help wanted sites.

According to Google, "Today, we're taking the next step in the Google for Jobs initiative by putting the convenience and power of Search into the hands of job seekers". You can further narrow down or refine your search query to include other options like full-time or part-time jobs.

Google is kicking off the feature by working with online rivals, like Microsoft Corp.'s LinkedIn and Facebook Inc., as well as leading job sites such as CareerBuilder, Glassdoor Inc. and Randstad's Monster Worldwide. While they can all be valuable resources, they sometimes tend to have overlapping job listings, making the search a bit more tedious. Are people looking for jobs in government because proposed cuts might mean new opportunities? If you're logged into your Google account, the search engine will even calculate potential commute times to each job that it finds that matches your criteria. Companies that update their own sitemaps with structured data will also have their job postings automatically pulled in by Google. The benefit for job seekers is that they'll see job postings from all of those sites (along with several others) as soon as they're posted. Here's how it works: Type in what you're looking for, anything from "jobs near me" to a specific title or field, and work through the results. Luckily, Google now has a solution that will allow job hunters to sift through the results more efficiently. So in effect, job postings shared on these website will also be reflected directly on Google Jobs Search.

What's the longest you've ever been on a job hunt? It goes into effect on Tuesday in the US on desktop and mobile devices, and is limited to English language search queries at first.
