The need for employment is on the increase around the world. The internet has being a medium used to facilitate the hunt for jobs through platforms created by individuals, group of people and companies to enable and promote job listings. These platforms have gone a long way to help people but the problem still remains that some job listings have duplicates. They have been listed in multiple websites and many job seekers end up applying for a particular job , submit the required documents only to find out that the job has been taken.
Google is trying to modify its search engine to also serve as an employment engine.
Right now, job hunters will be able to go to Google and see help-wanted listings that its search engine collects across the internet. The results will aim to streamline such listings by eliminating duplicate jobs posted on different sites.
Google will also show employer ratings from current and former workers, as well as typical commute times to job locations.
This detailed jobs information is a departure from the way Google’s main search engine has traditionally shown only bare-bones links to various help-wanted sites.
Google is in collaboration with a variety of help-wanted and employer-rating services, including LinkedIn, Monster, WayUp, DirectEmployers, CareerBuilder, Glassdoor, and Facebook.
