Google adds salaries to its job search tool

Google adds salaries to its job search tool

They can easily access it directly in Search. For job postings that don't include salary information provided by the employer Google will provide estimated salary information for the same or similar job sourced from multiple online partners.

The search giant said on Wednesday that it upgraded its job search tool so that people can see salary information for job postings that they may be interested in, something that Google estimates is missing from over 85% of USA job postings. With this, you'll be able to save a few candidates for a new job for later viewing.

With the update, Google is also improving location and application settings.

Along with that, Google is also adding the ability to choose how you send in an application if there's a choice available.

Looking for work is stressful, especially when you think about toggling between the various job sites you'll have to scour for the right gig (not to mention all the attendant resume tweaking). Just click the "Location" filter, and you'll see a range of distances, from two miles up to 200 miles or "anywhere" if you're a bit more flexible.

Once you've found a job you're interested in, Google now makes it as easy as possible to apply. If you've taken the time to build up your LinkedIn or Monster profile, it only makes sense to apply from there so employers can get the best sense of who you are. PayScale's salary data which analyzes pay based on a myriad of compensable factors - including position, geography, experience, as well as education, training or certifications required - will automatically be surfaced for relevant job postings on Google. Each posting will be accompanied by a bookmark button so saving jobs will be as easy as a single tap. You can then come back to the listings by going into your "Saved Jobs" tab on Google. You can also post your job listing on a list of sites (like LinkedIn, ZipRecruiter, and Glassdoor, among others) already integrated with Google's job searching service to avoid the hassle of integration yourself. If a user searches for jobs within a specific area or field, a special section would show applicable job openings at the top of the results.
