Google for Jobs rolls out in United States, available on desktop and mobile


Where available, reviews and ratings of employers and even commute time to the office will be provided along with the search results.

In addition, job seekers are able to filter by location and job title, among other criteria. Today, we're taking the next step in the Google for Jobs initiative by putting the convenience and power of Search into the hands of job seekers.

Google is trying to turn its search engine into an employment engine, with a feature called Google for Jobs. Today sees the grand plan come to fruition, with Google Search users in the US, on both desktop and mobile, now able to view a collation of open positions based on their search query.

Searching for a job can take time.

Google is rolling out new features that will make it easier for jobseekers to connect with employers, straight from the search page. Now, if you step away from your job search, you can pick up right where you left off and stay in the loop on opportunities that interest you. Search for "jobs nearby" and you're assured you won't get a listing for an opening on the opposite coast.

When advertising jobs through the platform, queries with "clear intent" such as a head of catering in New York City or entry-level roles in DC will be displayed with a job listings preview, and each job can then be clicked to expand and show further details. These are being powered by other sites, says Google.

On Tuesday, the search engine giant said on the Webmaster Central blog that Google for Jobs, a search engine specifically designed for job hunters in the U.S., has been improved with new tools and features.
