Google has launched a new job search experience to help job seekers find employment opportunities.
The new search tool will allow users have a streamlined experience; letting them explore, research and find relevant, local job postings.
Job seekers will be able to use the new search experience to easily find opportunities suited to them. According to Google, job seekers will be able to explore jobs from across the web and refine their search to meet their specific needs.
Users will get details about the posting, such as job title, location, whether it’s full-time, part-time or an internship, as well as detailed information should a job be of interest.
By pushing the ‘get alerts’ button, users will get email notifications when new jobs matching their searches appear.
“This new job Search experience will help the millions of Nigerians searching for new opportunities,” Juliet Ehimuan Chiazor, Google country director, said on Thursday at the Nigerian launch of the new search tool.
“We believe that the web allows anyone, anywhere, of any age, to grow their business, learn the skills they need to get a job, to grow in their career, become an entrepreneur or developer.
“This new jobs search tool will be a key driver for connecting job seekers to open opportunities, helping more people to Grow with Google.
“The launch of this new jobs Search experience is part of our broader commitment to improve economic opportunities for job seekers and employers through Google technologies in partnership with the broader employment industry.
“Google is committed to providing useful, accurate and relevant information based on your search queries and helping you connect to your next job. In this way, we hope to make a contribution towards matching job seekers with jobs and taking steps to tackle the skills gap.”
Job sites, platforms and employers can display opportunities in the new jobs search experience through open structured schema.org web markup standards.
On the project, Google is collaborating with the federal government, Jobberman, NGCareers, MyJobMag and other job resource websites in Nigeria.
