As Nick Zakrasek, project manager for this new search function, wrote in a Google blog, "Whether you're a young adult looking for your first job, a veteran hoping to leverage your leadership experience in civilian life, or a parent looking for a job with better pay to support a growing family, we hope this new experience on Google will help make the job search simpler and more effective". Google has essentially scraped existing job-finding sites to build its own utility within search. In order to give you a dense set of search results, Google is actually pulling data from some of the world's biggest job boards. There is no any separate application for this new Job Search Tool, you can simply use Google Search to get it working for you. The job search widget has not been included among these popular tabs but will appear once you make a relevant keyword search, such as jobs near me, civil engineering jobs, and disc jockey openings. You also will be shown Glassdoor and Indeed ratings for the company that is offering you those particular jobs, as per Tech Crunch. Once there, you will be able to refine your query, modify results for latest or most recent and based on location. Filters you can use include the role that you'll be occupying, location, listing age and position type.

The main objective of this feature is to allow those in need of a job to more easily see available jobs. Users can reportedly find it right on the search page. This way, they will immediately receive an alert informing them about new jobs in that area of interest. Furthermore, job seekers can turn on notifications so that they will be immediately informed of new listings that match their desired criteria.

Now, Google has launched the portal for job searchers as well, thereby completing the circle - Google now has information about the jobs and information about the job seekers. The platform isn't confined to these providers and Google expects more to become available over time.
