Google adds new feature to search to help users find jobs

Called Google for Jobs, it adds job listings to Google's search results page so that users don't have to leave the site to see them. The push, done in partnership with LinkedIn and Facebook (“FB”), is part of the company's broader effort to make its search more personalized and useful.

For example, someone who lives near Pittsburg and who is looking for a teaching job may only see job openings at local schools. Job seekers can also filter by full-time or part-time work, job titles, and the time the jobs were listed. Google will also show users commute times to their potential jobs.

Google for Jobs may appear to compete with existing job boards, said Google CEO Sundar Pichai, who announced the feature at the company's Google I/O developers conference on Wednesday.

But in fact, Google has worked with job boards to create the service, he said. When users click on the listing, they are taken to the site that hosts them. Google has also partnered with CareerBuilder, Glassdoor, Monster and ZipRecruiter to list jobs, according to USA Today.
