Google Introduces New Job Search Feature for Indian Users

In yet-another India focused product, global search giant Google has now introduced job search feature for India under Google for Jobs. With the new initiative, they'll be displayed in a card-based format, in line with Google's material design philosophy.

Google is assimilating the job postings. The search experience will be available in English on Google's flagship search app on Android and iOS and in Google Search on the desktop and mobile web.

According to Google, in the fourth quarter of 2017, it saw more than a 45 per cent increase in the number of job search queries.

"Google has worked with a number of organizations from across the industry to bring users the most comprehensive listing of jobs - this includes Aasaanjobs, Freshersworld, Headhonchos, IBM Talent Management Solutions, LinkedIn, Quezx, QuikrJobs, Shine.com, T-Jobs, TimesJobs, and Wisdomjobs", said a company spokesperson.

Google India's Vice President, Mr Rajan Anandan said that they had seen an improvement of 40% in the job seeking searches in their platform.

With this development, the company is planning to connect numerous job seekers around the country on one platform.

To help firms, especially 51 million small and medium enterprises (SMEs), in India find a better workforce and vice versa, Google on Tuesday rolled out a new Search experience that will list relevant employment opportunities.

Google is not the only big tech company trying to get into the job listings. "No matter who you are or what kind of job you're looking for, it will now be easier to find job postings that match your needs and skills", Achint Srivastava, Software Engineering Lead, Search Engineering Team wrote in a blog post. Users also have the option of bookmarking the relevant listings and consider them in future. Users will also be able to sign up for email alerts whenever new and relevant jobs matching their interests become available. More than 50% of those queries came from the mobile. This new arrangement is called "open documentation" that has been published for all third-party job search platforms and direct employers to make their job openings discoverable in Google's new job search experience.

The search giant pointed out in a blog post that there was a 45% increase in general job search queries and a almost 90% jump in mobile-based queries compared to the previous year.
