What Will Google for Jobs Mean for Your Online Recruitment Strategy?


A new survey found that 86% interviews and 72% of all hires come from online sources. Identifying which of those sources is the most effective for your business is essential for success in talent acquisition. As Google For Jobs launches, where exactly should your hiring team be focusing its efforts?

Today Google announced the release of an improved job search feature rolled out across both mobile and desktop, one of the initial steps in its Google For Jobs launch. When fully operational, it is expected to work similarly to a normal job site enabling companies to post job listings and manage recruitment processes. Supported by machine learning, it aims to provide more tailored, personalised information for jobseekers, which includes an estimate of commute time. Initially it is partnering with other sites including Facebook, Monster, LinkedIn, Glassdoor and CareerBuilder.
