Google announced during its I/O conference that it is all set on launching a jobs search engine. This will initially only target the United States and should become available sometime in “the coming weeks”. The newest service will be called the “Google for Jobs”.
Google’s Jobs Search Engine Will Be Based on AI
The giant company announced its latest product during its Google I/O event. This took place earlier this week, in between May 17th to May 19th. Sundar Pichai, the company CEO gave a brief preview presentation of the “Google for Jobs” and its abilities.
He stated that, “While job seekers may be looking for openings right next door – there’s a big disconnect here…We want to better connect employers and job seekers through a new initiative, Google for Jobs.”
Pichai pointed out that 46% percent of U.S. employers claims that they are having issues filling their open positions or finding new talents. So Google set out to offer the latest technology alternative to this matter.
The company’s job search engine will target and include all types of jobs. It should offer both entry-level, high-end professional positions, and anything in between or beside them. “Google for Jobs”’ base technology should also contribute to a win-win situation. The system will be based on Artificial Intelligence and machine learning.
As the system is fed more information, it should then develop and offer better suggestions. It could do so by understanding job classifications and how different workplaces can relate among them, and many others as well. Then, as more such associations start forming, it jobs search results should also improve.
Google claims that its “new” jobs search engine will become available in a few weeks. But this will not be a different entity. Instead, as U.S. users will start typing job search queries into Search, the system should start highlighting workplaces that match this query. Google will also partner with traditional job service providers for this service.
This jobs search engine will come with various tools set to help find a particular job. Options will include title, type, category, and location filters, for example. Google will also come with average commute times, to simplify the decision process.
