Now explore relevant job opportunities on Google Search
Google has rolled out a job search functionality within search results in India. The feature essentially aggregates job postings from across multiple platforms and allows users to find employment opportunities on Google Search itself. You can search for phrases like "jobs near me" and "jobs for freshers" to access a list of relevant openings. The feature is available on Android, iOS, and web.
Google wants to offer the most comprehensive job listings
When you click on a particular job listing, more information about the company, role, and the procedure to apply comes up next to it. You can apply filters like preferred title, company, location, and contract type to narrow down your search. You can set up e-mail alerts for the kind of job you want and save job postings by signing-in with your Google account.
Get in-depth job search results
For the feature to work Google has partnered with several hiring platforms in India including Aasaanjobs, Freshersworld, Headhonchos, IBM Talent Management Solutions, LinkedIn, Quezx, QuikrJobs, Shine.com, T-Jobs, TimesJobs, and Wisdomjobs. It also allows companies and employers to directly list openings with the job search feature. The feature currently has over a million listings from over 90,000 employers in the country.
Connecting Indians to numerous employment opportunities
The feature comes under an initiative called Google for Jobs, which focuses on "connecting job-seekers and employers, through deep collaboration with the job matching industry." It was first announced at the Google I/O conference in 2017 and has been available in the US since. Google claims the tool will help job seekers at every level, from freshers to experienced managers.
