Job Seeking To Get A Whole Lot Easier With Google’s New Feature

Phew! The process of recruitment and job seeking is going to become much easier, thanks to the tech giant’s new search feature.

Job listings on search results

No more multiple tabs and windows on job portals from now as Google’s new feature helps job seekers find relevant postings on the search homepage itself. Say, for example, “Animation jobs in Dubai’. This will lead to you to Google’s search results topped by job postings relevant to your search, followed by details like where to apply from, how long ago was the job posted and whether it’s part time or full time.

Feature available only in the Middle East

Big ups to Google’s Middle East team as it’s the only region to have this exclusive feature and to make job-seeking easier, they partnered with 11 job portals, including Bayt, Novojob, GulfTalent, Jobzella, Wzayef, Akhtaboot, Empliotic, Rekrute, WUZZUF, Laimoon and Forzana. Other job portals can register themselves on the job dedicated website, Hire by Google.

Win-win situation for employers and job seekers

Google’s partnered companies are confident the latest feature will make it easier to find a job. Omar Tahboub, General Manager at Bayt said: “Every month, over four million people land on our site from Google, in their search for a better career, and searching for a job can highly benefit from a streamlined and distinct experience that begins right on the search results page.”

Job search feature part of Google’s mission

Part of their mission to “organize the world’s information” and to “make it accessible to everyone,” the tech giant is hopeful the feature will connect job seekers with the right job and employer. Tarek Abdullah from Google said, “This new feature on Google Search builds on the great work being done by regional job portals in connecting people with the right career opportunities through aggregating all the opportunities available across several portals, allowing job seekers to better connect with the breadth of opportunities available on the web.”
