Google for Jobs is here to compete with LinkedIn
A lot of people look at the search engines when they are looking for a job. The world’s biggest search engine from this point also introduced the new service called Google for Jobs. The project benefits from the company’s advanced auto-learning capabilities, ranking millions of job postings to match candidates with more affordable business opportunities.
At the moment, Google is not considering starting listing their own job listings. Instead, it pulls data from third party services such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Glassdoor, Monster, and ZipRecruiter. It then filters out job advertisements based on distance and similar criteria and tries to put them together with similar job advertisements listed under different names. While some of the major companies, including FedEx and Johnson & Johnson, are among the pilot users of the program, Google CEO Sundar Pichai says he sees an 18 percent increase in business applications compared to previous methods.
It is not known whether Google has tested the market in this way before launching a competing service to search engines focused on job search. Currently, when a user clicks on the desired job advertisement, Google sends him to another servicet. This service is expected to be operational in the US in the next few weeks.
