“OK Google, find me a job” - Introducing 'Google Job Search'

10 August 2018

“OK Google, find me a job”

At long last, Google has launched its ‘Google Job’ offering in the UK after a successful launch in the US last year. So, what does this mean for potential job seekers? But first…

What is Google Jobs?

Google jobs is a new search function baked in to the Google search experience. Launched in the US last year and now working in the UK, job seekers are presented with a list of jobs in their area relevant to their search terms. Not unlike the experience you receive when you search for restaurants or bars, Google presents Job cards to you in a similar fashion:

Google Job Search


Great! So how do I search for a job?

Easy Peasy. Open Google search and get typing.

  • Search for the job title you want
  • Search for a location
  • And…well…that’s it!

Example: Java Developer, Belfast

Google Job Search Belfast


If you want to get more tailored results, Google lets you add more search terms such as:

  • Company
  • Locality
  • Date Posted
  • Type of job (Temp, Contract etc)
  • Sector

So, what does this mean for job seekers?

Job seekers will be presented with relevant, up to date job vacancies that they want. It will introduce a new experience in a familiar way and will hopefully speed up the time it takes to get that dream career move.

What does this mean for recruitment companies?
