Google Job Search Integration
Job seekers are more likely to apply to a job after performing a search backed by
Google’s Jobs API and are less likely to bounce.
Google for Jobs is a new job search engine powered by Google which allows job seekers to search for and apply to open positions directly from Google search. Google’s advanced technology makes it easier for job seekers to find positions that closely matching their preferences.
The integration between Google Jobs and COMPAS brings a true understanding of job descriptions and candidates experience that goes beyond just matching keywords. By replacing keyword search with a machine learning algorithm, the communication between you (job descriptions) and your candidates (resumes) is radically improved. Also, with the ability for users to refine results with filters such as industry, job title, and location, job seekers can quickly find opportunities that match their criteria.
How You Will Benefit
This integration optimizes your careers page so that your job listings will appear in Google for Jobs search results. Having your COMPAS powered careers page indexable by Google ensures that your job postings will be visible on Google for Jobs result and reach more talent.
During Sundar Pichai’s (Google’s CEO), keynote speech in 2017, Pichai referenced ManpowerGroup annual survey data, indicating that 46 percent of employers reported a talent shortage and had difficulty finding the right candidates for key jobs. Google is taking on LinkedIn with job listings in its main search product. If you search for “retail jobs,” for example, Google will know where you’re searching from and show jobs in your area.
COMPAS + Google Jobs saves money, time, and brings more relevant job descriptions to job seekers. Now it’s easier for potential candidates to find your listings and apply to your open roles, delivering you more qualified talent.
