Job hunting sucks. The listings are scattered across the internet and various local papers like a sadistic scavenger hunt. And once you think you found a relevant listing, the link is just one in a series of 15 that will eventually lead you to information about how unqualified you are.
Google wants to make your job hunt less painful. With Tuesday's launch of Google for Jobs, job hunting might become only a minor headache. The new AI will help employers and job seekers by collecting listings from across the web to make them easily accessible via search.
All you have to do is enter your job search into Google. You can get specific or enter broad searches like "jobs near me" or "food service jobs." Google will populate listings from sites like LinkedIn, Monster, Indeed, Facebook, and elsewhere. It will also provide employer reviews and information on your commute time if you're logged in.
Here's what you'll see when you enter a search such as "advertising jobs near me."
