Google's Launched its Job Hunting Aggregation Tool in the UK

Google's Launched its Job Hunting Aggregation Tool in the UK

The Mountain View-based company is working with a number of established players in the recruitment market, including The Guardian Jobs, Reed.co.uk, The Telegraph, CV Library and totallylegal.com which will supply Google with the information on available positions.

Essentially, Google has built a dead-simple jobs aggregator, which is integrated into the search tool we all use on a daily basis.

The new job search experience is now live and follows a successful launch of the job search experience on Google in the US. Now you can search for different jobs easily as there is no need to go through various platforms.

So next time you find yourself sick and exhausted of your boss, on the last straw with the colleague who keeps microwaving fish, or simply feel like you deserve more money for youe time and effort, Google's got another tool for you to check out.

For now, the United States tech giant is not charging employment sites to feature their listings nor using the service to place any extra adverts beyond those that normally appear within its results.

"And for third-party sites that represents a risk".

The many challenges are connecting to job seekers to find the right job with better information as per job availability.

"What the employers get is easier discoverability".

CV-Library was one of the first United Kingdom job boards to do so; meaning people searching for jobs on Google will see vacancies advertised by CV-Library clients, as soon as they're posted. If you're logged in to your Google account, it'll also use Google Maps to show you how long your commute will take. There are even plenty of aggregation sites that pull in vacancies from multiple sources and make the hunting process that bit easier.

There are also options to save positions and set up alerts for future job openings.

"Moving forward, we will continue to evaluate this and other partnerships".

However, its decision to avoid the new service means links to Indeed pages now appear further down Google's results pages.

"But it's a fearless move".
