What is Google for Jobs?
It’s a mobile-friendly job search engine for everybody. It collects jobs from everywhere and gives jobseekers a convenient, simple job search. But, it isn’t a job board.
You can only deliver jobs to Google electronically. Each job must contain structured data and link to an application process. Regular job boards and the best Applicant Tracking Systems have an application process embedded within them. They register new jobseekers and collect personal information via application forms. So, Job boards and the best Applicant Tracking Systems can deliver jobs to Google for Jobs.
Can your website post jobs to Google?
Yes it can. Most will require some bespoke development. That can be costly, but you could develop the required structured data and a mobile-friendly application form. You’ll also need some additional processes. They tell Google when your job is live and when it has expired. If not, you’ll have to wait until Google finds and indexes your jobs. It might never find them! If it does, you’ll be posting jobs for free on Google and that’s a win.
Is Google for Jobs useful?
Definitely! Do a Google search for “care jobs’ or “teacher jobs”. Jobs offered via Google for Jobs should be obvious in the search results. It’s no surprise that a Google search finds jobs on Google!
