Google adds salary information to job searches

According to the announcement on the Google Search Blog, salary information, location settings and application choices can now be added to display directly in search along with the job posting. Google for Jobs is created to make job search process more efficient. According to Google, 60 percent of employers are now showing jobs in search since it was rolled out five months ago. How do you know whether or not it's worth pursuing a new role short of visiting another website?

"We believe salary information is a crucial element to further enhance our user's experience as they search for a job", said Susan Cadrecha, Communications Manager at Google Search. Until now, though, that meant Google would steer you to one particular job board - typically the one with the most complete listing. Alongside, it will also display salary information procured from major job search portals like Glassdoor, LinkedIn, and PayScale.

By way of a quick recap, the internet giant announced the Google for Jobs program at the company's annual I/O developer conference back in May, highlighting plans to scour job listings posted across the web and collate them directly within Google Search. Whether you're trying to find a job that's close to home or you're planning a move, you need to find a job in your desired area.

Speaking about applying, this new version now also lets you choose which service you want to use to apply. But you can only set it up to 200 miles your location.


This means that in this new version, you can now finally filter jobs by how far away they are from you, not just by what city they are in.

Finding work is both easier and harder than it used to be. The tool can streamline the job search, allowing job options to be immediately viewable upon searching for them.

Once you've found a job you're interested in, Google now makes it as easy as possible to apply.

Planned in May, the job search program has successfully tied up with market leaderds such as Monster, Glassdoor, and Facebook with the latest features such as dynamic email alerts, salary info and other details.
