Jobs search within Google has now been streamlined to let you explore, research and find relevant/local job postings in Nigeria directly from your mobile phones and computers.
In other words, when you search for jobs on Google eg “sales jobs in lagos”, you will see search results displayed similarly as seen in the screenshot below :
And when you click on a job posting, you will be able to view at-a-glance details about the posting such as job title, location, whether it’s full-time, part-time or an internship as well as detailed information should a job be of interest.
You can as well save job searches and flip the switch on the list of job results to get email notifications when new jobs matching your search appear.
Using Google Maps integration, job seekers can search for jobs any place they can find on the map, and if they are signed in, they can even see how long it will take to commute to the job from home.
To optimise the Google jobs search feature and make it more useful, Google is working with a broad and growing cross-section of partners, such as Jobberman, NGCareers, MyJobMag and other job resource websites in Nigeria. These collaborations ensure Google is able to present job postings content accurately, as soon as it is posted, to exactly the people that will find it most relevant.
Speaking at the launch in Nigeria, the Google Country Director, Juliet Chiazor, said, “Finding employment is still very difficult for many people. This new job search experience will help the millions of Nigerians searching for new opportunities. We believe that the web allows anyone, anywhere, of any age, to grow their business, learn the skills they need to get a job, to grow in their career, become an entrepreneur or developer.
“This new job search tool will be a key driver for connecting job seekers to open opportunities, helping more people to grow with Google.”
Chiazor added, “The launch of this new jobs’ search experience is part of our broader commitment to improve economic opportunities for job seekers and employers through Google technologies in partnership with the broader employment industry”.
“Google is committed to providing useful, accurate and relevant information based on your search queries and helping you connect to your next job. In this way, we hope to make a contribution towards matching job seekers with jobs, and taking steps to tackle the skills gap.”
