For fresh graduates searching for their first job or professionals looking to take their career to the next level, Job Search is now on Google with half a million listings making it easier to land a perfect employment opportunity.
The new feature brings over half a million listings from different industries and job listing platforms directly to Google search.
Searching for jobs on Google will show results from partner websites, including those from the Department of Labor and Employment, Kalibrr, Jobayan Jobs Cloud, and the Civil Service Commission.
According to Google Asia Pacific product partnerships manager Stacie Chan, connecting young Filipinos to job opportunities is a “big challenge” with millennials accounting for roughly a third of the country’s workforce.
Users can customize their job search journey by filtering results through criteria such as job position, industry, location, posting date, and company type.
Aspiring applicants can also view more information about the posting by simply clicking on the Search result or through a link that will redirect them to the employer job page.
They can also opt to get notifications for job openings.
The job search feature is available on desktop browsers and the Google search app on Android and iOS devices.
