"OK, Google: Where should I work next?"

From entry-level roles to high-end corporate positions, Google is determined to solve the "talent shortage" problem felt by companies by making it easy for employers and candidates to find each other. To this end, Google has rolled out a job search feature, initially in partnership with traditional job search service providers like Glassdoor, Monster, and LinkedIn.

Similar to other job search functions, Google's feature filters job listings by title, location, type, and date posted, along with other considerations like commute time from a candidate's home. What's different about this search feature, however, is that it figures out how job titles are related and group them together. Techcrunch explains:

"For instance, a search for 'retail' could mean 'retail associate' or 'store clerk' or 'store manager,' depending on how the employer wrote the job description. Google will be able to put all these together, so users who search for 'retail' will see all matching job types."


As Google CEO Sundar Pichai puts it, this is part of an effort to leverage Google's AI capabilities to "democratize access to information and surface new opportunities." Sounds like great news for the many job seekers eager to find their next big gig.
