Job Search Game Changer

This job search tool is a game changer!

Google Jobs is a job search tool that is definitely a game changer. You don’t have to go to Career Builder, Monster or even Indeed to find jobs listed near you.

There are even filters like:

  • Job Title
  • Location – the distance you want to search
  • Date Posted
  • Type of job – full-time, part-time etc.
  • Company type – the industry of the listing
  • Employer – select one and it filters just those jobs.

You can bookmark the job and save it for later.

In the Google Search bar, I entered the word jobs and then the industry job title. It filtered the jobs near my location.

I could go in and filter more like I listed above, but I was totally impressed. It even ranks the jobs in the order they were posted or close to it.

If I click on the “Blue” job bar, I get the details of the jobs and the listing. I can turn on alerts to match the search. I can share this job to Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and email to someone with a short link.

I don’t know about you, but this Job Search tool that Google has created is going to be a game changer for the job seeker.

Employers will still post their jobs wherever they like and it seems that Google will find it. The jobs I reviewed seem to be coming from Glassdoor, ZipRecruiter and CareerBuilder, but I did see some jobs directly from a company web listing as well.

Take a look at this video to see what I did and if you have any questions, please let me know and I will check it out further for you.

Cheers to all and happy hunting!
