The search giant has expanded its job search capabilities in more than 100 languages to ease navigating and spotting opportunities with better accuracy.
Amidst the ongoing jostle to find sustainable work and to maintain the perfect work-life balance, working from home has become a rather intrinsic way in recent times. Google has good news for people who want to explore this option as it has made it easier to find a work-from-home job. This comes almost after a year it was announced that it is working on adding more job search features to its search engine.
“To help employers and recruitment platforms connect with candidates who need more flexibility, today we are announcing an improved job search experience that allows our customers to make remote work opportunities in the US more discoverable on their career sites.
“This functionality supports users who search for jobs with terms like ‘work from home’ or ‘WFH’ and returns the relevant jobs that may be labelled differently as ‘remote’ or ‘telecommute’,” Jennifer Su, Cloud Product Manager, Google, wrote in a blog post late on Wednesday.
Also, the search giant has expanded its job search capabilities in more than 100 languages to ease navigating and spotting opportunities with better accuracy.
This update will prove to be beneficial as Google had already allowed job searches to apply filters using commute time and type of transit, hence adding this work from home option is a very natural progression.
So how is Google planning to go about it?
The search engine will be using Schema.org which will determine job locations and requirements which will be in close sync with identifying the different telecommuting positions and geographic limits.
Also, it is working very closely with a number of job listing sites, like ZipRecruiter, Working Nomads and We Work Remotely. Also, the different employers and job boards which keep a tab on the pulse using Google’s Cloud Talent Solution will be also able to identify positions which are open to remote work, but they will be clubbed in the filtered category.
