After much speculation Google have finally announced the launch of Google Jobs - initially in the US. It'll be interesting to see how this rolls out - especially when you consider how they've dominated some other Classified advertising sectors, such property, cars, courses. Watch out Indeed and job boards - they're parking their tanks in your lounge!!
Google announced today it’s launching a jobs search engine in the U.S. The service will focus on all types of jobs – from entry-level and service industry positions to high-end professional jobs. It will also leverage Google technologies like machine learning and A.I. to better understand how jobs are classified and related, among other things. In a few weeks, Google will begin to recognize when U.S. users are typing job search queries into Google Search, and will then highlight jobs that match the query. However, Google is not necessarily taking on traditional job search service providers with this launch – instead, it’s partnering with them.
