Google unveiled a new search experience making it easier for job seekers in the region to find employment opportunities from popular job listing websites, online classifieds and companies.
The new feature is built directly into Google Search to provide a comprehensive listing of jobs across the web. At launch, job search will have hundreds of thousands of job listings from thousands of sites, including Mustakbil, PaperPK, Bikroy, Ikman and Xpressjobs.
Job Search provides a comprehensive listing of jobs across the web.
Job seekers can make unique job-seeking queries that will pull out a special module created to provide an immersive experience. Clicking on any job in this listing opens an at-a-glance view of comprehensive information about the posting. The feature will then direct people to the job listing page on the respective website to learn more information or submit their application.
Job postings with at-a-glance details.
Built to work both on mobile and desktop, job search comes equipped with a number of tools that make it easier for job seekers to find opportunities that fit their unique needs. With smart filters for categories such as job type, location, posting date, or company type, people can get customized results with a couple of taps. Job listings can also be saved or shared with friends and colleagues, and people can sign up for alerts to receive notifications when relevant new listings are posted for those searches.
New search experience enables job-seekers to save their job searches and get instant email alerts.
To help the larger ecosystem of job providers, Google has released open documentation, which will assist organizations big and small to make their job openings discoverable on the new search experience, using open structured schema.org web markup standards that Google supports. Businesses can benefit from the new experience by making their job listings more discoverable on Google, creating a win-win situation for both job-seekers and employers.
