Google said it intends the feature to help make job searching easier for every kind of user. For some jobs, the search results will also include pertinent information such as the estimated commute time from users' home addresses.

The main idea behind this new tool is to allow a user to search for available jobs without having to browse through multiple job portals. The goal of the initiative was to use the search giant's skills at organizing information to make finding jobs easier. I mean, it lists everything by combining search results from all the job search websites and job openings posted to company websites.

Dubbed "Google for Jobs", the technology will allow job hunters to access listings on websites such as Monster, LinkedIn, WayUp, CareerBuilder and others right from the Google homepage, and it will also include some companies' individual employment listings, said TechCrunch.

There's no way you can search for job openings as extensive as Google jobs.

One of the service's new feature is the ability to search for jobs based on custom filters, including job title, category, date posted, job type, and other criteria.

Job hunting can be a daunting challenge for many people.

Speaking of preferences, once you find a job that interests you, you could turn on notifications that would send you alerts through the Google app or through email when a new job matching your personalized search gets posted.

Google will also be presenting a jobs listing for you on your mobile and desktop's chrome browser, aiming to rectify the hassles of browsing through multiple job websites, which often ends up at wasting time at duplicate and irrelevant jobs. Instead, it will simply guide you to the portal that has the most complete information about that particular job post. "Yes, as with anything, there will be some challenges and adjustments to existing job posting sites; the biggest perhaps being for those that are now driven by SEO".

"The Google Jobs API on the J&J careers site enables candidates to find open positions across the company in a much more intuitive and relevant way", said Sjoerd Gehring, global vp of talent acquisition at Johnson & Johnson. It also will serve as a testing ground for Google's AI capabilities.
