Google is adding some requested features to its job search experience that was introduced earlier this year.
Job seekers will now be able to access salary information directly in search results, which is something Google says is missing from 85% of job postings in the US.
When actual salary information is not available, Google will display estimated salary ranges based on job title, location, and employer.
In order to provide estimated salaries, Google will be sourcing information from sites like Glassdoor, PayScale, and LinkedIn.
It’s possible that Google’s enhancements to job searches will further empower candidates. For jobs that have a salary listed, Google will compare it against the estimated salary. This will give job seekers a better idea of what they should be paid.
Other New Features
After listening to feedback from job seekers, Google is going to offer more control over the location used to find matching jobs.
There is now a ‘Location’ filter for job searches that will filter search results by distance— such as 2 miles, 20 miles, 200 miles, etc.
Other new features include the ability to select where to apply for a job, if it’s posted on multiple sites, and soon there will be the ability to save jobs with a bookmark button.
Since Google introduced its new job search experience the company has seen more than 60% of employers showing jobs in search, and helped tens of millions of people find new job opportunities.
Google will continue to listen to feedback and add new tools to the job search experience in the future.
