Who doesn’t want to post jobs to Google?
Google for Jobs has just arrived in the UK after a successful roll out in the United States. When performing a job search on Google, it’s pretty hard to miss because Google for Jobs is often at the top of the search results. We guess that most people would like to post jobs to Google for Jobs.
But can’t Google already see my jobs?
Google Jobs uses a different crawler to its usual website crawl tools. To be included in Google for Jobs, advertisements must be prepared with structured data so that Google can understand the content. Once jobs are available in the right format, publishers must request Google to take a look. The jobs crawler inspects a job’s structured data and determines whether other contributors have posted the same job. Google also checks whether there is an application process attached to the job.
When you post Jobs to Google for Jobs, applicants have a choice
For each job listed by Google, it offers the choice of how to apply. To illustrate, TotalJobs and Gumtree publish the same job, the applicant can choose their preferred job publisher when applying.
So what about your favourite Applicant Tracking System? Can CVMinder ATS post jobs to Google for Jobs too? The answer is “Almost!”
Posting Jobs to Google Jobs
We’re currently developing our solution to publish Jobs to Google Jobs. As part of this development we want to ensure that our customers retain publishing control. That means that CVMinder gives you control over which jobs you want to post to Google Jobs. CVMinder will ensure that your jobs are current and conform to Google’s strict structured data requirements.
We’re almost finished, so we thought we’d give you an update. If you want to post your jobs on Google Jobs, there will be no easier way than with CVMinder ATS. It gives you the same posting controls as other job boards, so you can fully automate your postings or choose manual approval.
There’s nothing to do in preparation for Google for Jobs. All of our existing customer will receive a license upgrade automatically once development is complete. We’ll keep you posted so that you know when you can post your jobs to Google Jobs and reach a wider pool of candidates.
Stay tuned and thanks for your support.
